Guernica author Mary Melfi is interviewed this week on Open Book. “When I started gathering information about the living conditions in Southern Italy at the turn of the last century from speaking to a variety of first-generation Italians I suddenly realized that pre-World War II Italy was a fascinating place,” says Melfi, “so it was then that I suspected my story might be of interest not only to Italians but to anyone who was fond of history.”
