Praise for The Revolution of the Moon

"A tragicomic parable of justice . . . Camilleri laces this true tale of exemplary leadership with humor."

"Bestselling and award-winning Italian author Camilleri offers a marvelous historical drama based on a true but little-known episode of 17th-century Sicilian history."
--Publishers Weekly

"Garnished with sly wit and broad humor, the novel is a late Renaissance caper."
--Washington Post
    "[Camilleri's] sly, wry approach to matters of morality, politics, crime and sexual dynamics seasons a stew of facts and fiction to perfection."
    --Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association

    "Suspense, surprises, and courtly intrigues abound in this story of power that also doubles as a tribute to women and their sensibilities."
    --Panorama (Italy)

    "Camilleri is back! This time with a novel that is entertaining, moving, and written in his hallmark and hypnotizing mix of Sicilian dialect and standard Italian...The Revolution of the Moon is, above all, an homage to women. Eleonora di Mora is both courageous and fiercely determined. More than a book, this is another jewel from Andrea Camilleri placed in a historical setting that feels tragically similar to our own."
    --Wake Up News (Italy)

    "Based on a truly captivating moment in history, Camilleri shows us how a woman triumphed over remarkable obstacles and, in the face of ceaseless scrutiny, how she proved to the world that she was as unwavering as the brightest moon."
    --Words Without Borders

    "Eleonora, a woman forgotten by history, will come alive to the reader. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to discover a remarkable, forgotten woman."
