Originally published in 1970, this appears to be a fourth printing.  "This is a small classic of autobiography in which Iris Origo recreates the lost mad world of Bernard Berenson and the Ango-American artistic coterie in Florence.   Her courageous account of wartime struggles at La Foce in Tuscany where she lived after her marriage is one of the most moving memoirs of the Second World War I have ever read"  Fiona MacCarthy.
