This is a wonderful book, with Newby at the peak of his powers. Anyone who is intrigued by the setting - Italy in wartime, as Mussolini fell and the Germans invaded - might be interested in a book I introduced, by Maria Corelli, called In Love and War. Maria gave me the manuscript - the type-written pages of a true story, which she wrote on the British Embassy typewriter in 1944.
It doesn't appear on the book search, so maybe Alibris...?

I hear this in the authors voice, the best way to read any novel but it can make it very difficult if your eyes keep filling with tears! The Gentle author is generous and forgiving as he recounts the trials of war he endured in Italy evading recapture , helped by the bravery of locals and by meeting Wanda, his enduring love .
