Translated from the Italian by Peter and Pamela Duncan. Good+ in good+ dust jacket. Blue cloth covered boards with silver lettering on spine. Light bumping and scuffing to edges of covers.

Now in an archival quality Brodart cover. NOT Ex-library. NO remainder marks. [From jacket flaps] Cross the bridge that spans the turbid Arno River in Florence and pick your way through the teeming, twisting streets and alleys of the Santa Croce quarter. There you will find Valerio. . . . Only an adolescent, he will tell you the story of Santa Croce with all the penetrating wisdom of a youngster whose environment has taught him what life is without having given him the chance to live it. He will introduce you to Carlo, whose husbandless mother brings home a new lover every night; Marisa, sensual but sentimental, whose ideas of romantic love trap her in a terrifying relationship; Giorgio, with a pride and courage that cannot be intimidated by brutality or poverty; and Gino, whose weakness leads him out of the Quarter and into the haunts of perverts. You will come to know these young people as you have never known a group of characters before. You will enter into their lives, into their very hearts and minds. You will be with them as they explore the joys and frustrations of adolescence. You will share their cynical knowledge of violence and hardship. You will feel with them the dark shadow of war. You will revel in the intense laughter of their youthful comradeship and taste the tenderness of their first loves. Above all, you will be captured by the unique combination of stark realism and lyrical beauty in THE NAKED STREETS. It is a novel that makes no compromise with the realities of life. At the same time, though, it is an unmistakable affirmation of the basic goodness of man and of his unconquerable determination to seek lasting happiness. When Vasco PratoUni's earlier novels, A TALE OF POOR LOVERS and A HERO OF OUR TIMES, were issued in this country, critics were quick to include him with Ignazio Silone, Alberto Moravia, Giuseppe Berto, and Carlo Levi as one of the handful of writers who have helped develop contemporary Italian literature to its present artistic height and commercial popularity. With the American publication of THE NAKED STREETS, another of Pratolini's realistic novels is introduced to the wide audience for the very best in foreign literature. Seller Inventory # 20180619001
