Bruce Ware AllenCloth: $35.00
[An] amusing and delightful compendium of historical Tiber trivia.
This engaging book carries the reader along on an entertaining and often illuminating journey that traverses the entire course of the river’s history from antiquity until the twentieth century. Allen has assembled a collection of stories that are alternately charming, scandalous, intriguing, and informative, relating how the lives of individuals-ranging from painters to popes, shepherds to saints, and emperors to aviators-have intertwined with the Tiber.
—Gregory S. Aldrete, author of Floods of the Tiber in Ancient Rome
Tiber provides a thoroughly enjoyable gallimaufry, engagingly written, [ranging] through Rome’s history from the riverside view, with much curious learning lightly displayed. Good fun, with something for everyone.
