I read this when I was in high school as it was a selection from the Book-of-the-Month Club . It was an entertaining and humorous account of a visit to the then Soviet Union by a group of Italians. Don Camillo surreptitiously gains access to the group and proceeds, disguised as a loyal Communist party member. As you might expect, the expedition provides one comic moment after the other. ( )

When Don Camillo (the priest) blackmails Peppone (the Communist mayor and senator) into taking him on a trip to Russia, he finds ways to turn everyone's life upside down. Written in the mid-60's, it is wonderfully insightful about the political situation and about life and religion in general. Unlike the earlier Don Camillo books, this is a novel rather than a series of short sketches. ( ) ( )
