About the author
Curzio Malaparte served in World War I, then became a journalist and founded and edited fascist periodicals. After attacking Mussolini and Hitler in print, he was stripped of his fascist party membership and briefly imprisoned. He worked as a correspondent during World War II; his best-known works, Kaputt (available from NYRB Classics) and La Pelle (The Skin), grew out of this experience.
