Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi

A strange novel set first in Venice in the heat of a Bienneale week where the "hero" lives life in the most hectic way possible segueing into a trip to Varanasi in India where the pace of life changes dramatically. I enjoyed the book because I love all things Venice. And the India parts were strangely affecting as well, particularly given that as was reading it as one year died and another began.
