Don Camillo Meets Hells Angels
Publisher: Penguin Books (1974)
The 1960s catch up with Don Camillo and his old rival, Peppone, the Communist mayor, with a vengeance. Don Camillo is lumbered with a trendily ecumenical curate and Peppone is challenged by a Maoist splinter group. The Italian Economic Miracle floods the town with its dubious benefits while the Po Valley reverberates to motor-bike gangs vying for the favours of Don Camillo’s infinitely resourceful and totally unscrupulous teenage niece... Small wonder that the crucified Christ over the high altar has to remind the fulminating priest more than once that he, too, was once a long-haired revolutionary.
