Words are Stones by Carlo Levi

Book cover for Words are Stones
Over a number of years, Italian writer Levi made three journeys to Sicily. He went on to chronicle his travels, penning a series of short essays that capture in miniature the essence of Sicilian life: its traditions, culture, and breathtaking landscape. Here, gathered in one comprehensive volume, these writings offer a rare and observant portrayal of an island whose people - though burdened by poverty, political upheaval, backwardness, and murder - retained a true generosity and graciousness of spirit.
