CHILDREN OF THE SUN
This is The Hard Cover Book - Collectable

Morris West

1961 H/C

  • "A damning indictment ... Mr. West has written with deep feeling." - Catholic Times. There was a child whom I used to visit 
  • in the House of the Urchins. His name is Antonino. He was eight years old, but his body was so small and his face so pinched 
  • and pale that you would have taken him for five or six. When I came into the small dusty courtyard where he played with the 
  • other boys, he would leave the game immediately and run to me, arms outstretched, calling my name ... 
  • Then I knew that I must write this book, to purge myself of the nightmare. I must make my voice the voice of the children, 
  • the hungry, the homeless, the dispossessed, the damned innocents of Naples.

  • First published in the 1950s, this book deals with the plight of the urchins of Naples, homeless boys who sleep in doorways, 
  • and beg and steal and scratch along as best they can, unprotected by the State. 
  • Padre Mario Borrelli sets out to help, and embarks on a journey of self-transformation.
  • 215 Pages
  • Has many black and white photographs/illustrations throughout...see example pics
  • Hard Cover no dust jacket
