"Death" in Venice" can be enjoyed on several levels. I continue to enjoy it, time and time again, if only for the sheer beauty of Mann's writing. He is the Mozart of the written word; there are no unnecessary or discordant notes. This new translation is so superb as to be beyond criticism. We simply need more like it.
Both Delaney's writing and storetelling rate a category 12 on the Beaufort Scale. I listened to it three times within a week of buying it. I am also seriously considering taking a freighter voyage in the very near future.
No word in the english language could find a better "home" than this marvelous story written and read by Frank Delaney.
