Latent pyromaniacs who eagerly clicked on the Let us burn the gondolas link in Andrea Rizzi’s post on Venice (10 February) were taken to a beautiful and thought-provoking photographic essay on the city.  Its author, Jonathan Walker, is a former Senior Research Fellow at Sydney University, biographer of a Venetian spy, and novelist. He has also been a volunteer in a community for homeless men, security guard, postman, census-taker, bill-poster and (for one possibly glorious, evidently  unrepeatable, evening) theatre usher. He writes a blog Blog Image 2with a strong interest in Venice and Venetians which also covers his other interests in literature, card games, comic books, photography, cinema and contemporary music. No Italianist, and no one interested in the above topics, should miss it.
