Donna Leon “About Face”
April 24th, 2009
The beauty of Venice is threatened by trash, waste, and pollution — and by the mafiosi who are cashing in on trash, waste, and pollution, in Donna Leon‘s novel “About Face.” But Venice is not the only disfigured beauty in this book.
A once stunning woman whose unhealthy appetite for plastic surgery has devastated her looks also figures prominently in the story. Series hero Commissario Guido Brunetti finds himself intrigued by this woman, while also trying to break up an illegal refuse-hauling operation.
