Review

"The New Yorker"

Searching into every corner of Italian life and scrutinizing every cliche concerning it, from the charm of the people (an illusion, he maintains) to the consolations of "la dolce vita" (another one), Mr. Barzini has written an invaluable and astringent guidebook to his country.
