This is the fifth issue in the Sub City Anthology series; according to the inside of the front cover: "The purpose of the Sub City Anthologies is to collect a sampling of great world literature that's unavailable or hard to find in the U.S.. In this case, that doesn't really apply. The books excerpted here are easily available, sometimes even on the dollar racks. But they remain overlooked and relatively unknown to younger readers--yet as relevant as ever." This issue contains excerpts from anti-fascist Italian works, including Carlo Levi's "Christ Stopped at Eboli," Ignazio Silone's "Fontamara," Ugo Pirro's "The Camp Followers," and Elio Vittorini's "Women of Messina". Blue cover with b&w interior.
