Seeking Sicily : A Cultural Journey Through Myth and Reality in the Heart of the Mediterranean Hardback
by John Keahey
Sicily has a timeless allure, and much of what one sees there today has changed little over the centuries.
With Sicily's literary greats as a guide, Keahey discerns what lies behind the soul of its inhabitants, touching on history, archaeology, food, art, and politics.
He looks to contemporary Sicilians who have never shaken off the influences of their forbearers, who believed in the ancient gods & goddesses; and who have always come under the thumb of outsiders.
Most importantly, he will explore the Mediterranean's largest and most mysterious island through the eyes of a visitor - making this book a delight to Italophiles and travellers alike.
