Curzio Malaparte
The Narrative Contract Strained
by William Hope

This book explores Malaparte's writing through his political pamphlets, prose poems and other work.

Besides offering a biographical overview of one of Italy's most versatile yet controversial writers, this volume explores Malaparte's use of his political pamphlets, prose poems, satitical verse and travel writing for the purposes of re-invention. These were publications which captured the imaginations of Fascist readers, but which ultimately alienated his post-war readership.
