Read full description of the books:

È forse uno dei romanzi della serie che più mi ha colpito, perché non mi aspettavo la questione del G8 e una reazione così forte ed emotiva da parte di Montalbano, che tradisce di certo la posizione dell'autore, ma che tocca sempre. Io sono genovese e, anche se ero troppo piccola nel 2001 per essere partecipe degli avvenimenti del G8, credo che per certi versi sia una ferita tutt'ora aperta per il paese ma soprattutto per la mia città. E ho arezzato l'analisi che fa Camilleri attraverso Montalbano, perché troppo spesso ci si concentra su Giuliani mettendo in secondo piano cos'è successo alla Diaz. La reazione emotiva da galantuomo e da poliziotto offeso del protagonista mi ha colpito e commosso, ed è una reazione che avrei voluto sentire più spesso anche nella realtà.

Anche la questione principale del romanzo mi ha colpito molto; sicuramente, come chiunque avrà notato prima di me, il punto di forza dei romanzi di Montalbano è la capacità di legare nella narrativa elementi di finzione e problemi criminali reali della Sicilia e del paese tutto. La costruzione del romanzo in particolare che mi ha convinto, con la storia del bimbo che tocca emotivamente Montalbano, sempre più in crisi, e solo in un secondo momento diventa il tema e il problema principale, legandosi con il primo morto. Mi ha preso molto, un bel libro.

Read information about the author

Ebook Rounding The Mark 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.
