Vividly capturing the heat, sounds and smells of southern Italy, "Conversations In Sicily" astounds with its modernity, lyricism and originality. Driven by a sense of total disconnection, the narrator embarks on a journey from northern Italy to Sicily, the home he has not seen in some fifteen years. Through the conversations of the islanders and a reunion with his mother, he gradually begins to feel reconnected.<

But to what kind of world? Written during Mussolini's time in power, "Conversations In Sicily" is one of the great novels of anti-fascism.<
