Review
“This book”“is an advanced-level, Italian-language textbook based on the literary and visual artistic work of Carlo Levi, namely, that associated with his acclaimed novel, ”Christ Stopped at Eboli", and his ten-month exile to the southern Italian region of Basilicata (also known as Lucania) during the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini. . . . This book makes a valuable contribution for all advanced students of Italian in that it presents another side to the story of Italy's history and development, namely that of its southern region. This is especially important given the large percentage of Southern Italians who immigrated to America at the end of the nineteenth-early twentieth century, a theme also treated in the book./i>—John Ryan, University of Northern Colorado“eLanguage: Digital Publishing in Linguistics” (06/28/2012)
