About the Author: Beppe Fenoglio

Beppe Fenoglio (born Giuseppe Fenoglio 1 March 1922, Alba (CN) - 18 February 1963, Turin) was an Italian writer. His work was published in a critical edition after his death, but controversy remains about his book Il partigiano Johnny (translated as Johnny the Partisan), often considered his best work, which was published posthumously (and incomplete) in 1968.
The works of Fenoglio have two main themes: the rural world of the Langhe and the partisan war; equally, the writer has two styles: the chronicle and the epos. His first work was in the neorealist style: La paga del sabato (this was published posthumously too, in 1969)
The novel was turned down by Elio Vittorini who advised Fenoglio to carve out stories and then incorporate them into the I ventitré giorni della città di Alba ("The twenty-three days of the city of Alba") (1952). These stories were a chronicle of the Italian Partisans or of rural life. One of such works was La malora (1954), a long story in the style of Giovanni Verga.

In 1944, between the Langhe hills, a private thought pushes Milton to abandon his post and seek out the truth behind the treasonous act of his inconstant lover, Fulvia. Through snow, rain, mud, and the fascist soldiers, he searches in a state of solitary heroism, blindly unaware of the possibly grave collective consequences. En el año de 1944 en plena guerra entre las colinas de las Langhe, un asunto privado empuja al partisano Milton a abandonar su puesto y perseguir la verdad sobre la traición de su inconsistente amada, Fulvia. Busca entre la niebla, la lluvia, el barro, y las partidas fascistas, en una suerte de heroicidad solitaria y de ciega irresponsabilidad de graves consecuencias colectivas.
