Robb writes brilliantly about the cycle of violence in southern Italy. This unclassifiable book melds politics, the mafia, travel, autobiography and serious cooking -- Andrew Taylor * Independent *
I love this book. It left me in a sweet and sour mood of exultation, grief, despair and hope which lasted for many days -- Peter Goldsworthy * Australian Review of Books *
One of the finest books on the Italian south. [Peter Robb's] analysis is as riveting in its commentary on modern Sicilian life as The Leopard was to an earlier generation * The Economist *
Peter Robb manages to celebrate the literature, art, manners and food of an entire region. His book is a masterpiece of elegant, sceptical enquiry and a pleasure to read -- Ian Thomson * Evening Standard *
