Product Description

Winner of the prestigious Italian literary prize, Premio Vareggio, Words Are Stones offers an insightful and authentic portrait of Sicily and its people. Over a number of years, Italian writer Carlo Levi made three journeys to Sicily. He went on to chronicle his travels, penning a series of short essays that capture in miniature the essence of Sicilian life: its traditions, culture, and breathtaking landscape. Here, gathered in one comprehensive volume, these writings offer a rare and observant portrayal of an island whose people?though burdened by poverty, political upheaval, backwardness, and murder?retained a true generosity and graciousness of spirit. Italian writer and painter Carlo Levi is best known for his remarkable work, Christ Stopped at Eboli.
