Andrea Camilleri (born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle) was an Italian writer. He is considered one of the greatest Italian writers of both 20th and 21st centuries.Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature in 1944, without concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories. Around this time he joined the Italian Communist Party.Fr Andrea Camilleri (born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle) was an Italian writer. He is considered one of the greatest Italian writers of both 20th and 21st centuries.Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature in 1944, without concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories. Around this time he joined the Italian Communist Party.From 1948 to 1950 Camilleri studied stage and film direction at the Silvio D-Amico Academy of Dramatic Arts, and began to take on work as a director and screenwriter, directing especially plays by Pirandello and Beckett. As a matter of fact, his parents knew Pirandello and were even distant friends, as he tells in his essay on Pirandello "Biography of the changed son". His most famous works, the Montalbano series show many pirandellian elements: for example, the wild olive tree that helps Montalbano think, is on stage in his late work "The giants of the mountain"With RAI, Camilleri worked on several TV productions, such as Inspector Maigret with Gino Cervi. In 1977 he returned to the Academy of Dramatic Arts, holding the chair of Movie Direction, and occupying it for 20 years.In 1978 Camilleri wrote his first novel Il Corso Delle Cose ("The Way Things Go"). This was followed by Un Filo di Fumo ("A Thread of Smoke") in 1980. Neither of these works enjoyed any significant amount of popularity.In 1992, after a long pause of 12 years, Camilleri on took up novel-writing. A new book, La Stagione della Caccia ("The Hunting Season") turned out to be a best-seller.In 1994 Camilleri published the first in a long series of novels: La forma dell-Acqua (The Shape of Water) featured the character of Inspector Montalbano, a fractious Sicilian detective in the police force of Vigàta, an imaginary Sicilian town. The series is written in Italian but with a substantial sprinkling of Sicilian phrases and grammar. The name Montalbano is an homage to the Spanish writer Manuel Vázquez Montalbán; the similarities between Montalban-s Pepe Carvalho and Camilleri-s fictional detective are remarkable. Both writers make great play of their protagonists- gastronomic preferences.This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy. The TV adaptation of Montalbano-s adventures, starring the perfectly-cast Luca Zingaretti, further increased Camilleri-s popularity to such a point that in 2003 Camilleri-s home town, Porto Empedocle - on which Vigàta is modelled - took the extraordinary step of changing its official denomination to that of Porto Empedocle Vigàta, no doubt with an eye to capitalising on the tourism possibilities thrown up by the author-s work.In 1998 Camilleri won the Nino Martoglio International Book Award.Camilleri lived in Rome where he worked as a TV and theatre director. About 10 million copies of his novels have been sold to date, and are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and North America.In addition to the degree of popularity brought him by the novels, in recent months Andrea Camilleri has become ev of a media icon thanks to the 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).He received an honorary degree from University of Pisa in 2005. ...اقرأ المزيد

This book and the last have a different tone to them, perhaps because by this time the author was dictating them. They are breezy and competent, with the fellows at the station incorporating Catarella-s speech patterns into their own (personally in person - wonder what that is in the original Sicilian), Montalbano-s instant food and sleep cravings, like a curtain drawn across the action until they are satisfied, and just general Camilleri: "Montalbano went over to the window, opened it, and sile This book and the last have a different tone to them, perhaps because by this time the author was dictating them.

I was a little sad by the end, because Montalbano and Livia are still distant as ever, and because it-s the second to last Montalbano book in the world.

This is a key book for the Montalbano series - Montalbano-s life changes drastically towards the second half, and he himself has begun changing and looking on life differently. The case is very theatrical in both its setting and its events, and there is a minor secondary plot that for once seems connected at first, and turns out to be completely unrelated, which is very different from previous books where disparate cases turn out to be part of a larger, interrelated story.

A Great penultimate novel If you like Montalbano then this last but one is a great read. I-m looking forward to the final Camilleri Inspector Montalbano novel in October.

Another typical Montalbano caper. I LOVE this series and saddened that Sr. Camilleri has passed. I think there is o to go...#27, but I have to space these out because they are so entertaining for me. Has anyone seen the TV series? It-s just as good!! (although we know, books are better.) Another typical Montalbano caper. I LOVE this series and saddened that Sr. Camilleri has passed.

Even mediocre work by Camilleri makes for an enjoyable read. For years Montalbano Mysteries were my favourite rainy weekend escape to sunny Sicily. Salvo, miss you already.

Andrea Camilleri died in 2019, so this may be the last of the Inspector Montalbano series, Set in Sicily, the ambiance is always delightful. Montalbano is a gourmand, and there are enticing descriptions of Sicialian dishes. Montalbano-s character is complicated, and, always interesting. The investigations involve traditional police procedures, some unorthodox Montalbano approaches, and a generous amount of humor.

In this case, Montalbano is faced with the murder of a man who was a theater director, and a loan shark. What killed him- his business or his hobby?

This is the last of the Camilleri books featuring Inspector Salvo Montalbano. I have read every one of the Montalbano books and have enjoyed them all. Unique characters and interesting plots, are a great recipe for an entertaining read. I will miss Salvo and his crew. Andre Camilleri was a one of a kind.

This is one of the later Montalbano stories that tells a story of a missing body as found by his second in command during a flight from his mistress when her husband arrives home unexpected.And then there is the body of a second murder victim, a moneylender and part of a theatrical company, whose actions are cause for serious observation.
