a masterpiece at a bargain-basement price

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Aug 13, 2008

 The Red Horse, by Eugenio Corti, is one of my all-time favorite novels. Based on historical events, and written on an epic scale, this book provides a fresh, penetrating insight into the Italian experience of World War II. Corti shows how a traditional Catholic culture was battered first by fascism, then by war, and finally by Eurocommunism. 

This is not a light read. It's a masterpiece. I don't think it's unfair to compare The Red Horse with The Gulag Archipelago or even War and Peace

It's comparable in length, too. The book runs about 1,000 pages. 

So I was jolted to see that my old friends at Ignatius Press, the American publisher, are offering The Red Horse on sale  for the ridiculously low price of just $5. At that price you can't afford not to buy it.
