The Sicilians

Gaetano Savatteri


Eccentric aristocrats, tenacious mothers, indefatigable potentates, tormented women, heinous assassins: lives and plans intermingle in the pages of Sicilians in an intriguing journey through time and the places of the mythical land of Sicily, a 'densely populated literary space' where the tendrils of men take root in their starkest or most baroque forms.
