What People are Saying About This
Perhaps the best of [recent Italian novelists] is Leonardo Sciascia...[Sciascia] has such deep roots in his native island that his books...seem to have written themselves out of family recollections, the reminiscences and gossip exchanged in the piazza...His incandescent hatred of evil, his love of liberty and reason shine through his tranquil, spare prose.
