|War in Val D'Orcia: An Italian War Diary, 1943-1944||
I love this book - the confusion and madness at the end of WWII in Italy - 40,000 POW's hiding in the woods!
|Love and War in the Apennines (Picador Books)||
Brilliant writer, brilliant book. Funny, moving and true.
|The Book Thief||
Incredible, original writing - best book I've read for years.
Read the book before you see the film.
