really a 3.75...I'm a fan of most books from this imprint, Europa Editions--European bestsellers translated into English and published in paperback form. Elegance of the Hedgehog hails from this house. This novella was easy to read. A coming of age story about a family that lives in an Albanian village in southern Italy. I liked it for this aspect but also for the insight into what's happening in Italy within these small villages to the families and the culture.
