Vigata, 1890: a Russian ship is on its way, spelling disaster for sulphur merchant Don Totò Barbabianca. Why is the whole town delighted? Rome, 1958: Samuel Beckett is performed for the very first time in Italy, staged by Andrea Camilleri. How did the audience react? Dublin, 2011: University College Dublin, James Joyce's alma mater, confers an honorary doctorate on Andrea Camilleri. What did that mean to Camilleri, and why is Ireland so special to him? South of France, 2012: Camilleri's first ever novel to have been translated into a foreign language (Irish) is now being translated into English. Why is Camilleri's official English-language translator, Stephen Sartarelli, finding it such fun? Discover all this and more - about the "other" Camilleri - in this unique tri-lingual book. And improve your Italian (or English, or Irish) in the process.

“I’m Italian by birth and culture, but I’m also very French … Russian up to a point … and I’m Irish too. We writers, that is, we have several mothers, or several fathers if you like, … and Ireland is one of my mothers. A mother made of Joyce, made of Yeats, made of Beckett above all … and made of many others, whom I won’t mention but whom I really loved,” dice Andrea Camilleri nel libro.
