Synopsis: Over the course of a number of years, Italian writer Carlo Levi made three separate journeys to Sicily. He went on to chronicle his travels, penning a number of short essays and capturing in miniature the essence of Sicilian life: its traditions, culture and breathtaking landscape. Bringing his writings together in one comprehensive volume - Words are Stones - Levi offers a rare and insightful glimpse into an island whose people, though marred by poverty and backwardness, retained a generosity and graciousness of spirit - even in the face of hardship, political upheaval and murder.
