For the amount of influence this genre had on contemporary media, its amazing how little has been written on it. There's probably a lot more "mondo" criticism out there to be translated but a brief search for English articles reveals little, so this is a gem.

There's even a brief section on mondo soundtracks. Good stuff.

This feels a little bit less like a book and more like a collection of articles from a really good magazine, but what else is there on the subject? I mean where else are you going to find an English language bio of Riz Ortolani?
