Reviews

"A wonderful book, enthrallingly told." --The Boston Globe

"Quite simply the best book in English about Italy." --The Economist

"Peter Robb presents a labyrinthine tale that brilliantly juxtaposes essays on food and art with historical accounts." --Sandra Mardenfeld, The New York Times Book Review

"Extraordinary . . . As an introduction to post-war Italy . . . it can have few equals." --The Times Literary Suplement (London)

"Robb has written the finest recent book on Sicily. . . . Midnight in Sicily is as exquisitely prodigal as its subject." --Stephen Metcalf, Slate.com
