1. Kaputt (New York Review Books Classics)
Curzio Malaparte

“Kaputt is a sad, astonishing, horrifying and lyrical book. It shows us the results of ideological fanaticism, racism, twisted values masquerading as spiritual purity, and the hatred of life, in their most personal and shameful aspects. It is essential for any human understanding of World War II.” —Margaret Atwood
