I would not recommend to anyone except advanced Italian readers or readers who can understand a lot of Italian because they speak a similar language.
The parallel text is ok, but some of the translations aren't quite right (translating it as future tense when it's passato prossimo, etc.) It lost a star for that.
It is also a marvelous cross section of twentieth century Italian short stories, and as such, you may not appreciate all the stories, but certainly you will find some that are captivating and endearing.
However if you purchase this book purely to read a collection of Italian short stories in English, you will find it a handsome addition as a primer for those with little or no former familiarity with modern Italian literature. It will not disappoint you.
