Axel Munthe: The story of San Michele.
Introduktion by Tim Burnett.
A series of overlapping vignettes, roughly but not entirely in chronological order.
Contains reminiscences of many periods of his life.
He associated with the very poorest of people, including Italian immigrants in Paris and plague victims in Naples, as well as rural people such as the residents of Capri, and the Nordic Lapplanders. He was an unabashed animal lover, and animals figure prominently in several stories, perhaps most notably his alcoholic pet baboon, Billy.
