8809--Since this light-hearted story deals with a dictator, his Secret Police, his mistress, and a plot against his life, it is perhaps not surprising-even though the scene is laid in an imaginary country 'on the other side of the ocean'-that it was suppressed by the fascicst authorities when it was published in Italy in 1941.
