Almost as soon as it was rediscovered in the 18th century, the lost city of Pompeii became a highlight of the Grand Tour, that essential rite of passage for educated European gentlemen. This magnificent and strikingly original book combines the work of three celebrated modern writers - Ethan Canin, Jim Nisbet and Jay Parini - with 53 of Mimmo Jodice's hauntingly evocative black and white photographs to reflect on the Grand Tour, the ruins of antiquity, and our relationship with the past.
