Donna Leon: The Anonymous Venetian

The Anonymous Venetian


Commissario Brunetti's hopes of a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghera - a body so badly beaten the face is unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the dead man. But he is met with a wall of silence. Then he receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information. And before the night is out Brunetti is confronting yet another appalling and apparently senseless death ...

Send-ups of Vietnam, the healthcare system, terrorism, political correctness, and the oil business take on a new tenor, alongside timeless standbys like sex, death, cancer, and toilet humour. Within the pages of this book, you will find: selections from Henry Beard's News The Anonymous Venetian free pdf of the MonthA" column, arguably the direct ancestor of The Onion; Mrs. Agnew's LSD trip, as transcribed in her diary (by Doug Kenney); Michael O'Donoghue's handy guide to the 21 Danger Signs of Cancer; Meyerowitz's famous Mona Gorilla; a photographic essay on Hitler's retirement years in tropical paradise, by Michel Choquette; Sean Kelly's brutal takedown of Babar and His Friends; Charlie Rodrigues's Aesop Twins; the Foto Funnies, featuring a three-year winner of the Miss New York City Big Breasts Contest; Gerry Sussman's jaded New York cabbie, Bernie X; Ed Subitzky's Come Too Soon ComicsA", one of which graces the front endpaper; M.K. Brown's Dr. Ngodatu, which later became a cartoon short on The Tracey Ullman Show; and many, many more.
