>>12577998>In his youth, Malaparte was a fascist. Then he fell out with Mussolini and was sent into internal exile. After the intercession of Mussolini's son-in-law, Galeazzo Ciano, he was freed in 1938 - but was repeatedly rearrested. As a war correspondent for the Corriere della Sera, he covered the axis powers on the eastern front, and then the liberation of Italy. After the war he moved to Paris, where his politics became communist. Before he died in 1957, he was rather tempted by Maoism.>Everyone, therefore, has a reason to hate Malaparte: you can hate him on the left, or on the right.
