Recommends it for: Those interested in Fascist Italy and Malaparte
Recommended to David by: WSJ Five Best column
This book was really hard to get (thank you, Johnson County, Kansas, Interlibrary Loan and Indiana University of Pennsylvania) but very, very worthwhile in filling out the fascinating portrait of Curzio Malaparte. The title character, Dario Duvolti, clearly is modeled after Malaparte. This "fictionalized" account of a 20-year relationship is full of Fascist Italy atmosphere. Also made me glad (once again) to have visited Italy and Rome. Great flavor comes through in the book.

Funny parallel -- Ma
