5.0 out of 5 stars Photographing a micro-world, 14 July 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thin Paths: Journeys in and around an Italian Mountain Village (Hardcover)
I loved this book. I live in Italy, in the north but further east with respect to the book's location, and can affirm that what is written is very true to life. I find a lot of books about life in Italy very shallow and not reflective of the reality, which is so irritating, but this one hits it really on the head. Even though the author is not Italian, she has the ability to observe and report accurately. In this way she managed to capture this very unique, slightly odd, slice of the society, the environment and the inter weavings amongst the various characters. They are not typical of the Italian culture overall, but of this particular area. Also loved the way the present was tied to the past by following very thin threads, really fascinating. She did a brilliant job of re-creating their little world.
