LITTLE WORLD, HELLO

The comedian's account of an Italian idyll, as he and his wife stay at an old castle at La Rocca di Poggio, bought for his wife by her father. The Savos make a rather unorthodox entry, and ""Cheemy"" discovers what it is to be Lord of the castle, confronted with ghosts, bats, a vicious goose, a flirt, a thief, a story-teller, and the little town's many problems. There is the reconditioning of the castle, the fiestas, the complete winning of the Peggianos' faith and loyalty, and the identification with their village life. Not important, but a pleasant record of Italian life, told with enough humor and simplicity to make it interesting....Should appeal to readers who never heard of Jimmy Savo- but who like bits of other ways of life.
