Product Description

•••••
Bread and Wine, the second novel in Ignazio Silone's acclaimed Abruzzo Trilogy and largely regarded as his best, depicts Pietro Spina's return to Abruzzo after more than a decade in exile. Spina, disguised as the priest Don Paolo Spada, tries to avoid capture by the fascist police and takes over leadership of the cafoni's rebellion against the regime. Bread and Wine is a stirring, genuinely serious work that stands as an achievement of aesthetic maturity, capturing both the intricacies and simplicities of the human heart against the backdrop of an average Italian village during Mussolini's reign. 

"The time always comes when the young find that the bread and wine of their home have lost their flavor and they look elsewhere for their nourishment."
