Although this has been the inspiration for two popular films, "Scent of a Woman" is a great read in it's original form, a comfortably far cry from the "hoo-ha" of Pacino and the Hollywood tale it came to be.

Two soldiers travel across Italy at the height of summer, passing through Genoa, Rome and Naples. One of the soldiers is blind, graceful, gleefully vicious and wears a prosthetic arm; the other, twenty years his junior, is his guide. But as these men drink their way through bars, brothels and train carriages, who is guiding who? Only as they reluctantly approach the blind man's destination, and a stifled love affair, does the purpose of the trip become tragically clear.

"Scent of a Woman" is a lyrical exploration of regret, defiance, and what it really means to see.
