“A Bell for Adano”

You may recall John Hersey from his famous work Hiroshima.  His Pulitzer-winning piece A Bell for Adano is much lighter, in fact quite comical.

Product Details

This 1945 winner is set in Italy during the end of World War II.  An Army major helps in the reconstruction of a small seaside Italian town.  It’s a sort of cross between Catch-22 and It’s a Wonderful LifeA Bell for Adano is highly readable, charming, and also short – an excellent introduction to the Pulitzers and a great story for WWII fans.
