“GLI ZII DI SICILIA” by Leonardo Sciascia
“Gli zii di Sicilia” by Leonardo Sciascia was published in 1958. The book is about World War II and deals with, among many other interesting situations, how a Sicilian has a strange attachment to Stalin. I read this book again after 50 years with great interest and some nostalgia! I hope that it will also interest the students at Casa Italiana.
