What a great book. Don Camillo has conversations with Jesus throughout. And by conversations I mean direct speech, quotation mark kind of conversations. Dialogues.
"Lord," said Don Camillo, "he[Peppone]'s gone a bit too far, and I shall destroy him!"
"Don Camillo," said the crucified Christ over the altar, "they went a bit too far when they hung me up on this cross, but I managed to forgive them."
"But they didn't know what they were doing! Peppone had his eyes wide open and deserves no pity."
"Look here, Don Camillo," Christ retorted; "ever since Peppone became a Senator haven't you been particularly hard on him?"
These words hit home, and Don Camillo resented them.
"You wouldn't say that, Lord," he protested, "if you knew me a little better."
The plot revolves around communist mayor Peppone winning 10 Million Liras in the lottery and not willing to share them with the masses, and the resulting need to keep his wealth secret, and Don Camillos very unchristian intrigues to expose Peppone's hypocrisy. Highly recommended, it is the 7th book in the DonCamillo and Peppone series.
Other than that, I am in a frenzy of downloading German music.

watch the news, goddamnit.
