A Soldier of the Great War
On his last long walk, septuagenarian war hero, deserter, and professor Alessandro Giuliani shares his past with an illiterate young factory worker -- spinning a remarkable and deeply absorbing tale of heart-stopping escapes, loves unrequited and won, madmen, dwarves, and mafiosi. But overshadowing all is the miraculous and terrible Great War -- an almost surreal parade of horrors that devastated and defined Alessandro, yet enabled him to experience fully the magic and beauty of life. This thrilling production is the book's first time on audio.
