KIRKUS REVIEW

Fontamara had a good press and a success among discriminating readers. This is a collection of stories against a similar background, village life and the peasantry of Italy today, with its impact of new forces on old traditions. Not -- in the same sense -- a propaganda book --the emphasis is neither for nor against the Fascist domination, but rather revealing the facts of the clash between the old order and the new, with resultant tragedy or comedy. Slight, Vivid.
