About the author (2008)
Norman Lewis (1908-2003) was one of the greatest English-language travel writers. He was the author of thirteen novels and fourteen works of nonfiction, including "Naples '44", "The Tomb in Seville", and "Voices of the Old Sea". Lewis served in the Allied occupation of Italy during World War II, and reported from Mafia-ruled Sicily and Vietnam under French-colonial rule, among other locations. Born in England, he traveled extensively, living in places including London, Wales, Nicaragua, a Spanish fishing village, and the countryside near Rome.
