Who said that Gramsci is the kind of communist you can take home to your parents? Setting aside the Notebooks I think the prison Letters are one of the most touching pieces of prison lit.

I read Robert Blake's Disraeli 38 years ago as a change of pace after my bar exam. As a bio it was so good that I have never wanted to spoil the effect by reading a competitor. Apptly not in print in the US although aftermarket copies are available at the books sites. Just in general, I think Blake never got the recognition in the US that he merits. His little history of the conservative party looks British but in fact is a wonderful meditation on what it means to be conservative. Also OOP apptly.
