About the Author :

Dino Buzzati (1906-1972) was an Italian editor, novelist, poet, playwright, and short story writer. He has been lauded as one of Europe's foremost experimental writers of the twentieth century.

From Booklist :

This is no ordinary tale of the 1949 Tour of Italy, pitting rivals Fausto Coppi (considered the greatest Italian bicycle racer) and Gino Bartali (three-time Giro winner). These recently translated newspaper dispatches of each stage of the race reveal a truly poetic narrative by Buzzati (his style is compared to John McPhee), who captures not only the visually stunning backdrop from Sicily to Milan, "the sun is setting amid dusty reddish halos," but also the fervor among the villagers who swarm dusty streets to see, for a fleeting moment, their heroes battling for the coveted pink jersey through the "velodrome of Italy." From the boat ride to the start to the famous Dolomite stage, Buzzati's account transcends traditional sports reporting, drawing readers to the battlefront with military metaphors and using characters from The Iliad, Achilles and Hector, to illustrate this public rivalry. This is a story of a changing country, divided loyalties, and a two-wheeled race with a unique perspective sure to appeal to bike-racing fans, readers interested in Italian history, literature aficionados, and sports journalists.
