Na een uitputtende reis als oorlogscorrespondent met het Italiaanse leger door de bloeddoordrenkte landschappen van Servië, Kroatië, Polen, Rusland en Finland schreef Curzio Malaparte zijn verslag van een Europa in ontbinding. Precieuze sfeerschetsen, rauw realisme en surrealistische beelden staan rug aan rug: bevroren paarden in het Ladogameer aan het Finse front, het leven in het getto van Warschau, het werk van politici achter de coulissen, portretten van leden van de nazi-elite als Himmler en Frank en de grootscheepse moord op de joden in Iasi, Roemenië, in 1941 - een van de eerste literaire beschrijvingen van de holocaust.
Read information about the authorBorn Kurt Erich Suckert, he was an Italian journalist, dramatist, short-story writer, novelist and diplomat.
Born in Prato, Tuscany, he was a son of a German father and his Lombard wife, the former Evelina Perelli. He studied in Rome and then, in 1918, he started his career as a journalist. He fought in World War I, and later, in 1922, he took part in the March on Rome.
He later saw he was wrong supporting fascism. That is proved by reading "Technique du coup d`etat (1931)", where Malaparte attacked both Adolf Hitler and Mussolini. This book was the origin of his downfall inside the National Fascist Party. He was sent to internal exile from 1933 to 1938 on the island of Lipari.
He was freed on the personal intervention of Mussolini's son-in-law and heir apparent Galeazzo Ciano. Mussolini's regime arrested Malaparte again in 1938, 1939, 1941, and 1943 and imprisoned him in Rome's infamous jail Regina Coeli. His remarkable knowledge of Europe and its leaders is based upon his experience as a correspondent and in the Italian diplomatic service.
In 1941 he was sent to cover the Eastern Front as a correspondent for Corriere della Sera. He wrote articles about the front in Ukrania, but the fascist dictatorship of Mussollini censored it. But later, in 1943, they were collected and brought out under the title Il Volga nasce in Europa ("The Volga Rises in Europe"). Also, this experience provided the basis for his two most famous books, Kaputt (1944) and The Skin (1949).
