Waterstones Says

A searing account of the author’s exile in remote Eboli in Southern Italy, this memoir is a powerful polemic against fascism and the calculated impoverishment of the peasantry during Mussolini’s regime. Heartrending and angry, yet with a beautifully cultivated sense of time and place, this is a book that deserves to be read.

'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.

“An outstanding read.”

I bought this to replace the tatty paperback I bought in a charity shop some 20 years, because I re-read it it every couple of years or so.. Quality of print is not much better to be honest, but the book itself is... More

“A profound and moving classic”

I suspect we may have to thank Richard E Grant and his BBC 4 programme Write Around the World for the reprinting of this classic. I was surprised it was out of print as it is a beautifully written and profoundly... More
