Beneath a Scarlet Sky

book cover

A friend recommended this book to me almost three years ago. I affirm that it is fabulous, and almost unbelievable. Having read Unbroken and having just finished The Boys in the Boat, the former about WWII and the latter right before it, this tale about Pino Lella is as brutal as it is surprising. I think I would have preferred the straight narrative rather than the novel” and filling in the gaps” approach by the author, but I’m still glad I listened to the story.
