This is another one of my all-time faves. It is "a lush, literary epic about love, beauty, and the world at war". It tells the life story of Alessandro Giuliani before, during and after WW1. You might be daunted by its 800+ pages, but it's well worth the effort.Take a couple of days off and settle in while Alessandro tells you his story.
