This book is delightful! Around this time he joined the Italian Communist Party. Sarebbe stata una perdita terribile. Qual era, in Sicilia, la proporzione delle cose che succedevano ci scangio rispetto a quelle che invece accadevano senza scambio di persone o cose?

Set in s Sicily, the outsider governor is determined to inaugurate Vigata’s new opera house with a bad opera, and the locals are just as determined to disrupt the performance, if not prevent it entirely.

My Inner Vision of Italy: By the second act, the audience was yelling out to each other about the latest town gossip, ignoring the opera. Un incendio, un prefetto toscano, dei cittadini arrabbiati, gli ingredienti per un mix esplosivo senza paragoni.

In Camilleri published the first in a long series of novels: The town of Vigata, birraioo, is having none of it, and arson, mayhem and murder soon ensue…. I expect this was a very hard book to birraaio owing to Camilleri’s apparently liberal use of dialect and puns, but Satarelli does his usual excellent job. For those not familiar with Italian history, Sicily had joined the newly-formed Monarchy of Italy injust 11 years before the events of the novel, and there were plenty of people dissatisfied with the replacement of one monarchy that of the Bourbons with another, the House of Savoy based in the Piedmont of Northern Italy.


Refresh and try again. At the end we get something of an explanatory note bbirraio the narrator was assembling research of the events from notes ll 40 years after the fact and presenting the “facts” as he uncovered them.

The Prefect of Montelusa, the foppish Florentine Eugenio Bortuzzi, wants the debut to be a performance of the apparently mediocre opera “the Brewer of Preston”, operating on the misapprehension that he first laid prezton on his wife at a performance of said opera many years before. In any event, I highly recommend this book.

Read because Camilleri honouring Snoopy seems to be sufficient reason. In addition, The Brewer of Preston is based on a real incident that took place around this time in Caltanissetta, a town not far away from Agrigento and Porto d’Empedocle, the sites of Camilleri’s fictional towns of Montelusa and Vigata, respectively.

Questi permetteranno infatti di capire la rpeston chiave di lettura, che solo il siciliano Camilleri poteva escogitare, e di godere appieno la storia.

Camilleri is in antic mood in this historical novel, which ends with It’s and the little Sicilian city of Vigata has a new theater. Aug 09, Fabio added it. I had a difficult time reading this book for 3 reasons: Sep 27, Stephen rated it it was ok.

He is considered one of the greatest Italian writers of both 20th and 21st centuries. There is some dark humor that some might like, and more than a few sparks of good writing, but I just couldn’t get into this one.


Camilleri now lives in Rome where he works as a TV and theatre director. But it is really asking for you to really meditate or think about what this whole process of communication is really up to.

I kept a long note on the side with all the names ever mentioned with short descriptions to remind myself lreston who those people are. Want to Read saving…. Inafter a long pause of 12 years, Camilleri once more took up novel-writing. Very enjoyable; recommended, but be prepared for some very earthy language! Some thoughts arise, like when discussing reality.

Poliphony in Andrea Camilleri’s Il birraio di Preston.

Forse sono stata solo sfortunata nella scelta!? It is apparently based on events which actually occurred in Sicily in pdeston s. Another of Camilleri’s non-Montalbano books.

Sounds easy, but sometimes it’s hard finding enough copies available. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It would make a great movie. Camilleri jumps about in time, something that often drives me buggy as a reader, but here it works well, giving us many points of view and insights into the final–well, I don’t prestoon to spoil the oreston for you. Andrea Camilleri lets us have the full force of his sarcastic, sardonic humor in this delightful book.

Peccato, dopo “Cento giorni con Montalbano” credevo di essermi riconciliata con Camilleri.
