MOOD MUSIC


Is there any better music as an accompaniment to read Camilleri?

Funny you should make a post like this. I just posted a comment on The Smell of the Night about Montalbano as a lover and a comic hero, and I found myself thinking that he would make a good operatic character -- an opera buffa character, perhaps, except that people die in the novels.

I sometimes think that Italy itself is an opera buffa character. The tragic death following the Palermo-Catania football game and the cancelling of all the weekend games is very sobering. Perhaps the phrase Falstaff meets Antigiones could be used as a brief description of a Montalbano novel.

I read about that violence at the soccer game, too. It made quite an accompaniement to my reading of Camilleri: violence and death at the Palermo-Catania game right after I'd read sentences like "Which airport, Palermo or Catania?"

Hmm, a production of Falstaff is about to be staged here. Perhaps I should go see it.

In case you're interested, this afternoon Simona, of the blog Briciole, and I are going to publish our posts about dishes from the Montalbano books (the posts are not up yet, but should be within the hour). Nine other people played along with the "food mentioned in books we like" theme, and we'll have links to those posts as well. It was a really fun thing to do, and some sensational food came out of it.

Cheers.
