Una leyenda viviente» (New York Review of Books). «Los más honestos, directos, iluminadores e importantes relatos publicados en este país en los últimos 20 años» (San Francisco Chronicle). «Un humor sardónico que a veces da la impresión de que W. C. Fields se haya reencarnado como escritor» (Rolling Stone Magazine). «Bukowski. Considerado por muchos como el mejor escritor americano. Y por otros posiblemente el peor. Yo estoy entre los primeros» (Jim Christy, Toronto Hobe). «Un profeta de nuestro tiempo» (The New York Times Book Review) --

It was also a time when other promising careers and even whole movements, like Graffiti, spurted to life and then just as suddenly
Pictures from Italy by Charles Dickens( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1844 Charles Dickens (1812-70) and his family moved to Italy for a year, eventually settling in Genoa. This book, Dickens' second travel memoir, describes his experience of travelling through France and exploring Italy. Based on letters to friends, particularly John Forster, it was first published in instalments from January to March 1846 in the Daily News (a new radical newspaper which Dickens himself founded and briefly edited). The edition in book form reissued here appeared in May 1846. The main focus of the book is the northern regions of Italy, including Tuscany, Milan and Venice. It also includes substantial sections on Rome and Naples as well as a brief sketch of Switzerland. Landscapes, architecture, lodgings and food are described with selective but penetrating detail. The shrewd social observations characteristic of Dickens' novels are found here, especially in his critical remarks about poverty, popular religion and the Catholic clergy." --Publisher description
