Guernica author Mary Melfi‘s book, Italy Revisited, is profiled by Bernard Mendleman in The Suburban.

“According to her mother,” writes Mendelman, “Melfi’s birthplace was a village where time was told by the shadow cast by the sun, wheat and olive oil were used to barter, and marriages were pre-arranged — as much about property as it was about love. Generations lived together, women helped the men in the fields and the aged and feeble stayed home to bake and cook.”
