Here is a clear chronological list of all recent posts on my book “Florence, Dante and Me.”
If you want to read the whole book I suggest you scroll down until you reach the post for Sept. 13, 2022. That’s your first reading (on what critics wrote about the book), and your second will be the reading for Sept. 15, 2022 (my introduction to the book). Continue by reading the next twelve entries from the book. Your last reading will be the footnotes that I will post around Jan. 14, 2023.
Some confusion has resulted from my year 2016 postings on this book. Those postings were not strictly chronological but were based on what I thought were interesting passages. My apologies for the confusion.
You might want to put the following list in a file.

I hope some of my readers are asking their library to order this book. Are cell phones, TVs and computers tolling the death of challenging books? I hope not.
