Book Review, Curzio Malaparte - "The Skin" and "Kaputt"

Two unique testimonies of the absurdity of war, the hypocrisy of politics, the horror of the human condition of civilians in war times.

The Skin: a tender and moving portrait of the city of Naples in the years of WWII, and the American Army entering in Roma.
Kaputt: chronicles of Finland Romania Ukraine and Italy from a brilliant intellectual who knew personally the most important nazist and fascist personalities of the time.
