I really love reading anecdotes from the lives of anyone, but especially older people who have lived through a lot of significant historical events. They might be modest about them, but their experiences form an important part of social history. Authors that are more than ninety years old will have grown up in a very different time compared to people today, and it's exciting to read about what their early lives were like. If they clearly remember a lot of fine details and they're good at describing their lives, which is the case for Mario Farina, it's even better.
