Something weird happened today 14.10.2006 I bought the Guardian, a newspaper I usually avoid like the plague, and in its review section is an article about Andrea Camilleri by Paul Bailey.
It must be fate?
I will read it later and see if there is any useful information to be gleaned about the Sicilian writer.
A quick perusal informs me that he had been a member of the Communist Party, and does not approve of Silvio Berlusconi. Nothing earth shattering there.
Also Camilleri was a great friend and admirer of Leonardo Sciascia, but prefers fellow Marxist Dashiell Hammett to Raymond Chandler.
