Capri and No Longer Capri
Capri and No Longer Capri
"This is a serious rather than fluffy book about the past and present of Capri, and darkly elegiac. Note -this is the hardcover edition, but it is now OP in all formats, so try marketplace."
The Story of San Michele

Woman Like Me (Donna Come Me) (Troubador Italian Studies)

Kaputt (New York Review Books Classics)
Kaputt (New York Review Books Classics)
