"Some time ago a critic writing in the Times Literary Supplement noted that Sciascia's "style shows how strongly, how single-mindedly and intelligently he has reacted against the candyfloss fluffiness of so much around him. What he has to say is compressed so tightly that his writing is rock hard, sometimes dry; in contrast to the almost crazy carelessness in the use of words so often found in Italy, his words are picked so exactly that they form mosaics of their own, precise patterns of emotional or intellectual meaning beyond the precise sense of what they seem to be saying.""--BOOK JACKET.
