"A new translation of the stories of Giovanni Verga, the greatest Italian short-story writer since Boccaccio." "Born in 1840 into a well-to-do Sicilian family, in the 1870s Verga became an active observer and habitue of Milanese salon society, but eventually found in the everyday lives of Sicilian peasants the inspiration for his finest narratives.

L'art de voler by A Altarriba( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
"When published in 2009, The Art of Flying was hailed as a landmark in the history of the graphic novel in Spain for its deeply touching synthesis of individual and collective memories. A deeply personal testament, Altarriba's account of what led his father to commit suicide at the age of ninety is a detective novel of sorts, one that traces his father's life from an impoverished childhood in Aragon, to service with Franco's army in the Civil war, escape to join the anarchist FAI, exile in France when the Republicans are defeated, to return to Spain in 1949 and the stultifying existence to which Republican sympathisers were consigned under Francoism ..."--Amazon.com

Twilight in Italy by D. H Lawrence( Book )
1 edition published in 1933 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
In 1912, a young D.H. Lawrence traveled to northern Italy. He spent nearly a year on the shores of Lake Garda, lodged in elegantly decaying houses set amid lemon groves and surrounded by the fading life of traditional Italy. It was here that he wrote Sons and Lovers and here too that we see the early flowering of the prose that would come to define Lawrence' s oeuvre. This is a travel book unlike any other, where landscapes and people are backdrops to Lawrence s deeper wanderings into philosophy, life, nature, religion and the fate of man. With sensuous descriptions of late harvests, darkening days and the fragility of ancient traditions, Twilight in Italy is suffused with nostalgia and premonition. For, looming over the idyll of rural Italy are the arrival of the industrial age and the brewing storm of World War I; upheavals that would change the face of Europe forever."
