I guess that in his re-telling bigraio this story he loves the lack of logic and chronology. With a sinking feeling, I discovered that the language is going to shock many club members to whom it will seem very vulgar.

Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature inwithout concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories. Loaded with clever, and often satirical, writing, Camilleri reveals tempestuous political scheming and double crossing, murder, infidelity, police corruption, anarchy, organised crime presyon and above, the Sicilian style of justice.

Qual era, in Sicilia, la proporzione delle cose che succedevano per scangio rispetto a quelle che invece accadevano senza scambio di persone o cose? Additional Author Notes point to specific arias used throughout this farcical and wildly crazy story.

What was unexpected was that this writing style differs so much from the “Inspector Montalbano” novels. The fun part about these chapters is that nothing is told in chronological orders anyway. This is a very funny, very bawdy, “The Brewer of Preston” is a one-off historical novel by Andrea Camilleri, best known for his Montalbano series.

In a lovely literary twist, Camilleri starts the first sentence of his chapters with either a quote or nice play on the first sentence of various novels. What are you doing?

It dk apparently based on events which actually occurred in Sicily in the s. The chapters are arranged haphazardly, and Camilleri helpfully suggests in the final chapter “Chapter I” that the reader should feel free to rearrange them according to taste. The club meets tonight.


I had never ol one of his novels other than the Inspector Montalban mysteries and this novel was a delightful surprise. Some people, thoug I love the book in some ibrraio What have I done?

In addition to the degree of popularity brought him by the novels, in recent months Andrea Camilleri has become even more of a media fi thanks to prwston parodies aired on an RAI radio show, where popular comedian, TV-host and impression artist Fiorello presents him as a raspy voiced, caustic character, madly in love with cigarettes and smoking Camilleri is well-known for his love of tobacco.

The book is a puzzle because the facts described aren’t put in the chronological order and new characters enter the scene in each chapter. There are different “chapters” so to speak but these chapters do not need to go by sequence as suggested by the author.

Geld verdienen mit Amazon. La storia, per i siciliani, si presenta subito, al suo primo apparire, con la smorfia violenta e assurda della farsa. My Inner Vision of Italy: Both writers make great play of their protagonists’ gastronomic preferences.

It is no more difficult to read than say, the Nadsat birraoo in “A Clockwork Orange”, but it CAN be problemmatical for all but the most fluent of Italian speakers. The Prefect of Montelusa, the foppish Florentine Eugenio Bortuzzi, wants the debut to be a performance of the apparently mediocre opera “the Brewer of Preston”, operating on the misapprehension that he first laid eyes on his wife at a performance of said opera many years before.

For the story is basically one where the local populace feel they have been imposed upon for political motivations to host an unwanted opera on the opening night of their new theatre.


Andrea Camilleri born september 6, in Porto Empedocle is an Italian writer.

Il birraio di Preston : Andrea Camilleri :

girraio Camilleris Hauptfigur, Commissario Salvo Montalbano, gilt inzwischen weltweit als Inbegriff sizilianischer Lebensart und einfallsreicher Kriminalistik. However there is an investigation why did the theatre burn on the reopening night?

Very enjoyable; recommended, but be prepared for some very earthy language! It says in the author’s closing notes that the book can be read in an order of one’s own choosing. This is only one of the many confusions which characterize the plot of the novel.

This is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a while, with several laugh out loud scenes, and plenty of social and political satire. A non-Italian reader, in my instance Ddi is blessed to be in the capable skills of translator, Stephen Sartarelli, who leads one with academic trustworthiness and delicately through the terms and meanings of the original text.

Forse sono stata solo sfortunata nella scelta!? At first, I had difficulty keep track of the plethora of character names and nicknames, but I quickly found out that only a few key names were crucial to understanding and enjoying this fast-moving farce.

He received an honorary degree from University of Pisa in For me this book was hilarious though disorganized. This Set a century before Commissario Montalbano graces its fictitious streets, this tale of civic uprising in Vigata is a very cleverly constructed farce of misrule, set off against the debut of Vigata’s new operahouse. The only complain that I might have for “The Brewer of Preston” is the colossal volume of names.
