This looks interesting.

At first glance I thought this novel was just a collection of travel writings but it is so much more. It is a meditation on life and death and travel as metaphor for escaping. Two stories told to the letterwriter are actually about escape and of course that's what our narrator wants to do when he hears his diagnosis.
To my mind though I like the cross current of location and story. I just found the third story rather weak compared to the other two and didn't get a sense of Padua as opposed to Locarno, Vicenza and Venice. But that is just a little quibble. Otherwise a very enjoyable read.

Catching back from the meeting. The cafe proved to be a coffee cart with bad service in an empty room that the "boys" had chosen. Will release at Sunday's meeting after all.

I read this book when it was first published ,. A second reding confirmed my very favourable judgment. Superbly written musings on lif and death, travel.
