|Author||Robert V. Camuto|
Being of Sicilian parentage and having been through all of Italy a number of times EXCEPT Sicily, this book convinced me that I have to get there soon. It's true. If you're of Sicilian parentage, when asked what your nationality is, what emits from your mouth is "Sicilian" rather than "Italian". Then you correct yourself, maybe. I'm also a veteran of the high end wine industry and Camuto got me interested enough to have brought up the possibility of traveling to Sicily to find a product to import to the Senior VP of my company. We should. Maybe I'll ask Camuto for a few recommendations should we plan the trip.
You really get a feel for Sicily while reading this book. It reminded me so much of stories I heard from family members when I was growing up. Plenty of positives but Camuto does not avoid discussion of the negatives. Good book!
