Carlo Levi wrote books mostly of his own experience. This novel is one oh his best, a narration of power, lyricism, wisdom and bitter hope. Levi was a genius not because of his perfect formed books, but his outter and inner eye to see life and it's misterys.

Christ Stopped at Eboli is one of my favourite books. I read it atUniversity and have re-read it on countless ocassions. I was excited tosee another of C. Levi's books translated into English and promptlyordered it thinking it would be as enjoyable as Eboli. The truth is, thereis no way of knowing how good this really is as the Steerforth translationis terrible, making the reading a real struggle. Eg. 'car' is translatedas 'machine.' The Italian for car being 'macchina' which can also meanmachine. I could go on... A real shame.

Book arrived in good time and good condition. Not as well translated as Levi's first book "Christ stopped at Eboli"

Interesting and gives account of post World War 11 in Italy Elizabeth
