ISBN: . inventory # 23799. FROM THE PUBLISHER-This is a tender and sentimental Italian story by One of Italy's most respected and important writers, the author of A TALE OF POOR LOVERS. It tells of two brothers brought up-because of their mother's death-in different homes and within diverse social strata, and their efforts to understand and love each other before the younger brother's premature death. The narrator writes the book to his brother, evoking with remarkable simplicity and feeling their childhood and adolescence and ultimately lamenting that only too late did he learn to appreciate the special qualities of a brother he long resented. Set in a Florence which Pratolini depicts with unusual warmth and love, this short, affectionate novel is a deeply moving and satisfying work.
