What I'm Reading: “La luna e i falò”

Yes, yes I'm finally getting around to reading Cesare Pavese's classic, "La luna e i falò.”

I think I was meant to have read it in college but must have been busy doing something else!

What's it about? Superficially, it tells the story of an Italian man who returns to his small village after having made it in America. More broadly, it's about politics, and memory.

And just where did I pick up this copy of the book?

The Atlanta Public Library!

Yes, it's true.
