Don Camillo Meets Hells Angels by Giovanni Guareschi
Penguin | 1972 | ISBN: 0140035400 | 176 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
This is the story of a clash between young and old, change and tradition, skeptics and believers. Don Camillo and his old enemy the Communist mayor, Peppone, are at grips with life in the sixties. They have both grown old, and have to come to terms with the problems of The Italian Economic Miracle in which old landmarks are swept away and the world is dominated by cars and motorcycles, refrigerators and washing machines, and also a rebellious youth, the teppisti, who view them as living corpses. Giovanni Guareschi died suddenly in July 1968. The manuscript of this book was found some months later. It will be the last Camillo book to appear.
