9780140183115: Christ Stopped at Eboli (Twentieth Century Classics)
From the Inside Flap:

"We're not Christians, Christ stopped short of here, at Eboli."

Exiled to a remote and barren corner of Italy for his opposition to Mussolini, Carlo Levi entered a world cut off from history and the state, hedged in by custom and sorrow, without comfort or solace, where, eternally patient, the peasants lived in an age-old stillness and in the presence of death--for Christ did stop at Eboli.

"In turn a diary, an album of sketches, a novel, a sociological study and a political essay a beautiful book" --The New York Times Book Review

"A sensitive and gifted writer .. Perhaps the best thing in his book is the detachment by which he avoids sentimentalising the peasants and at the same time renders their undestroyed feelings for human values' --New York Herald Book Review
