This delightful tour of a site rich with both history and mythology—yet populated by men and women with lives and problems that are entirely real, down to earth, often sordid, frustrating, petty, and by no means romantic—serves as an introduction not only to the city of a thousand names but to the very spirit of its inhabitants, their daily worries as well as the grand tapestry in which they all labor to find happiness.
