Two strangers sit at Florian’s Café on the Piazza de San Marco in Venice, Italy. Thomas Mann’s brief tale about a search in life for something that isn’t a disappointment. It also reveals the origin of Miss Peggy Lee’s popular song: Is That all There Is. Most of the lyrics are taken, word for word, from Mann’s story.
