Indie Award shortlist: Non-fiction: Street Fight in Naples by Peter Robb

Street Fight in Naples is one of the four Short listed books in the non-fiction category for the 2011 Indie Award.  I haven’t read this book, but years ago I did read Midnight in Sicily, and Peter Robb is a writer who can really capture the imagination.   If you are interested in Italy, art, history, political machinations, religion, taxation and culture or even just a few of those, get set for a gripping read.  Max Oliver, a Sydney bookseller who reviewed Street Fight in Naples for Bookseller and Publisher magazine in November last year, said it isn’t an ‘easy’ read, but will reward those who are prepared to put in a little effort. The book is currently in hardback only, and is $50
