I found this book very interesting. As always with an anthology, it was a mixed bag, but on the whole the level was quite high. And, of course, I learned a lot about Italian women writers during this difficult period of the country's history.
I have removed the BCID as I donated the book to the library of Casa Italiana, where I study.
