Read full description of the books La Peau:

Un homme mort est un homme mort. Il n'est qu'un homme mort. Il est plus, et peut-être aussi moins, qu'un chien ou qu'un chat mort. En 1943, Curzio Malaparte, grand correspondant de guerre et officier de liaison auprès des Alliés, se trouve à Naples avec les troupes américaines venues libérer le pays. Entouré de ces hommes fraîchement débarqués en Europe, que les années de combat et de désillusion n'ont pas encore abîmés, l'auteur entreprend une tragique odyssée à travers une Italie en ruine, livrée à la misère et au chaos. Partout on se livre aux plus viles exactions. Comme un écho au tumulte des hommes, le Vésuve entre en éruption, les animaux meurent au supplice, la terre se déchire. De page en page, la complexité de ces destins happés par la brutalité de l'Histoire se déploie sous l'oeil de l'auteur, intransigeant jusqu'à l'écoeurement avec la cruauté des faits. Et c'est là la force de son récit : outre la beauté de son style, c'est sa capacité à s'indigner et à indigner le monde qui demeure remarquable. Curzio Malaparte poursuit avec La Peau sa magistrale entreprise de témoignage sur la Seconde Guerre mondiale.

Read information about the author

Ebook La Peau read Online! Born Kurt Erich Suckert, he was an Italian journalist, dramatist, short-story writer, novelist and diplomat.

Born in Prato, Tuscany, he was a son of a German father and his Lombard wife, the former Evelina Perelli. He studied in Rome and then, in 1918, he started his career as a journalist. He fought in World War I, and later, in 1922, he took part in the March on Rome.
He later saw he was wrong supporting fascism. That is proved by reading "Technique du coup d`etat (1931)", where Malaparte attacked both Adolf Hitler and Mussolini. This book was the origin of his downfall inside the National Fascist Party. He was sent to internal exile from 1933 to 1938 on the island of Lipari.

He was freed on the personal intervention of Mussolini's son-in-law and heir apparent Galeazzo Ciano. Mussolini's regime arrested Malaparte again in 1938, 1939, 1941, and 1943 and imprisoned him in Rome's infamous jail Regina Coeli. His remarkable knowledge of Europe and its leaders is based upon his experience as a correspondent and in the Italian diplomatic service.

In 1941 he was sent to cover the Eastern Front as a correspondent for Corriere della Sera. He wrote articles about the front in Ukrania, but the fascist dictatorship of Mussollini censored it. But later, in 1943, they were collected and brought out under the title Il Volga nasce in Europa ("The Volga Rises in Europe"). Also, this experience provided the basis for his two most famous books, Kaputt (1944) and The Skin (1949).
