Summary

''As a young intelligence officer stationed in Naples following its liberation from Nazi forces, Norman Lewis recorded the lives of a proud and vibrant people forced to survive on prostitution, thievery, and a desperate belief in miracles and cures. Although Lewis found little to admire in his fellow soldiers, he gained sustenance from the extraordinary vivacity of the Italians. There was the lawyer who earned his living bringing a touch of Roman class to funerals, the gynecologist who specialize[d] in the restoration of lost virginity,'''' and the widowed housewife who timed her British lover against the clock. Naples '44 is a landmark poetic study of the agony of wartime occupation and its ability to bring out the worst, and often the best, in human nature.''''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
