This review is from: Trieste (Kindle Edition)
I chose this book by chance from your list online, as the beginning of a personal quest--I lived in Trieste as a toddler and Italian became a second mother tongue--after WWII, with American parents. I was overcome with the scope of the history Morris lays out, and am sincerely grateful for her frank and beautiful descriptions of places, people, empires and minute, daily details. Wonderful indeed and I'm anxious to go face the 'bora'--that eternal wind--in mid-winter this year.
