The Moon and the BonfiresThe Moon and the Bonfires by Cesare Pavese

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A boy grows up in a small town in Italy, but leaves for America when he grows up and WW2 breaks out. After making his fortune, he returns to the small town to learn the fate of his childhood friends and the town. While outward appearances are only changed mildly, he quickly learns that the war has had a huge impact on the lives of the people he knew. A beautiful, nostalgic, and poignant short novel.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A book from the "Why I Write" series. A meandering essay that finds the author discussing his formative years and the books he loved and aspired to. Beautiful writing that stirs the brain.
