La casa di Mario Praz è una delle rare meraviglie che siano apparse nella Roma moderna. Il libro è la storia di come quella casa sia concresciuta alla vita del suo abitatore, intrecciandovisi in modo inestricabile. Mentre ci fa attraversare, stanza dopo stanza, la "casa della vita", il suo tono è quello di una guida, prodigiosamente erudita, che sia anche però un saggista e memorialista della specie più felice: la specie di Lamb, di De Quincey, di Pater. Alla fine il lettore si aggirerà per questo "museo vivo" come in una foresta incantata, che un potente artificio tiene divisa dalla vita immediata, ma proprio per catturare la vita segreta delle immagini riflesse: illustri scrittori e personaggi della cultura europea del Novecento
