    There is currently being shown on Sky Atlantic a very good adaptation of this novel. Both of us are really drawn into the lives of the two girls (brilliant casting) and post-war Naples is so well evoked. Try and catch it.. (Italian:subtitles)

  13. I recently bought this in paperback and found it very interesting and 'digestible'. What wss new to me was the explanation for South America's inability to make strides globally - geography of course being such a determinant. A large sub-continent but with so few harbours for great ports. Obvious when you think about it but I for one hadn't thought about it..
