“An author of authentic distinction.”—The New York Times

Robert is an American soldier in occupied Rome during the final months of World War II. Lisa is a young woman obliged to work in Mamma Adele’s on the Via Flaminia. The passion they feel for one another is fueled by their separate, and equally desperate, needs. But can love between victor and vanquished ever blossom? This classic story of a poignant love affair, informed by the aftermath of war, is as relevant and moving today as when it was first published. Alfred Hayes’s screenplay for Paisan, directed by Roberto Rossellini, was nominated for an Academy Award.
