Read full description of the books:



En una cálida noche siciliana, tras nadar un buen rato en las tranquilas aguas que se remansan a escasos metros de su casa a orillas del mar, Salvo Montalbano emerge de la oscuridad con las ideas más claras: la solución del caso le ronda las narices, así que sólo es cuestión de paciencia y método, para lo cual nada mejor que relajarse antes con algún manjar preparado por Adelina, su fiel asistenta. Si a los asiduos lectores de Andrea Camilleri esta escena les resultará familiar, los lectores no iniciados merecen una breve introducción: Salvo Montalbano tiene cuarenta y cinco años, conserva una novia en Génova y es comisario de policía del pequeño pueblo de Vigàta, en Sicilia, que si bien no se encuentra en ningún mapa de este mundo es más real que la vida misma. Fiel amigo de sus amigos, amante de la buena mesa y sabedor de que la tierra ha girado y girará muchas veces en torno al sol, Montalbano es el compendio vivo de las antiquísimas culturas mediterráneas. Su calidad humana, unida a su infalible perspicacia, han hecho de su creador, Andrea Camilleri, uno de los autores más leídos de Europa.

En esta ocasión, un conocido político y empresario aparece muerto semidesnudo en el interior de su coche en un arrabal donde reinan la prostitución y la droga. Todo apunta a que ha fallecido de un ataque al corazón después de haber mantenido relaciones íntimas con una persona desconocida. Sin embargo, el comisario Montalbano no se fía, y armado con su natural olfato para los comportamientos extraños, se propone descubrir la trama sexual y política que se esconde tras el presunto crimen.

Read information about the author

Ebook La forma del agua read Online! Andrea Camilleri (born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle) is an Italian writer. He is considered one of the greatest Italian writers of both 20th and 21st centuries.

Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature in 1944, without concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories. Around this time he joined the Italian Communist Party.

From 1948 to 1950 Camilleri studied stage and film direction at the Silvio D'Amico Academy of Dramatic Arts, and began to take on work as a director and screenwriter, directing especially plays by Pirandello and Beckett. As a matter of fact, his parents knew Pirandello and were even distant friends, as he tells in his essay on Pirandello "Biography of the changed son". His most famous works, the Montalbano series show many pirandellian elements: for example, the wild olive tree that helps Montalbano think, is on stage in his late work "The giants of the mountain"

With RAI, Camilleri worked on several TV productions, such as Inspector Maigret with Gino Cervi. In 1977 he returned to the Academy of Dramatic Arts, holding the chair of Movie Direction, and occupying it for 20 years.

In 1978 Camilleri wrote his first novel Il Corso Delle Cose ("The Way Things Go"). This was followed by Un Filo di Fumo ("A Thread of Smoke") in 1980. Neither of these works enjoyed any significant amount of popularity.

In 1992, after a long pause of 12 years, Camilleri once more took up novel-writing. A new book, La Stagione della Caccia ("The Hunting Season") turned out to be a best-seller.

In 1994 Camilleri published the first in a long series of novels: La forma dell'Acqua (The Shape of Water) featured the character of Inspector Montalbano, a fractious Sicilian detective in the police force of Vigàta, an imaginary Sicilian town. The series is written in Italian but with a substantial sprinkling of Sicilian phrases and grammar. The name Montalbano is an homage to the Spanish writer Manuel Vázquez Montalbán; the similarities between Montalban's Pepe Carvalho and Camilleri's fictional detective are remarkable. Both writers make great play of their protagonists' gastronomic preferences.

This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy. The TV adaptation of Montalbano's adventures, starring the perfectly-cast Luca Zingaretti, further increased Camilleri's popularity to such a point that in 2003 Camilleri's home town, Porto Empedocle - on which Vigàta is modelled - took the extraordinary step of changing its official denomination to that of Porto Empedocle Vigàta, no doubt with an eye to capitalising on the tourism possibilities thrown up by the author's work.

In 1998 Camilleri won the Nino Martoglio International Book Award.

Camilleri now lives in Rome where he works as a TV and theatre director. About 10 million copies of his novels have been sold to date, and are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and North America.

In addition to the degree of popularity brought him by the novels, in recent months Andrea Camilleri has become even more of a media icon thanks to the parodies aired on an RAI radio show, where popular comedian, TV-host and impression artist Fiorello presents him as a raspy voiced, caustic character, madly in love with cigarettes and smoking (Camilleri is well-known for his love of tobacco).

He received an honorary degree from University of Pisa in 2005.
