Recommends it for: Anyone interested in Fascist Italy
Recommended to David by: WSJ Five Best article
Choose to read this for the section about Curzio Malaparte. Dipped into a couple of other chapters (articles, really), including the one on Mussolini. Would be quite interesting, but have others I'd rather read at the moment.

Illuminating look at the myth and reality of the "Italian" personality, "Public lies, private truths"based on region, history and class.
