A humorous novel of Calvin Becker, a young boy who vacations in Portofino each summer with his Protestant missionary family. Set in the 1960s, the coming-of-age tale follows Calvin's encounters with the sights and locals of the seaside town, while he avoids his parents' constant bickering and their attempts to convert Roman Catholics. The film version starred John Lithgow and Diane Wiest.  (ITL164, $15.00)
