Warehouse Deals Reduzierte B-Ware. With a sinking feeling, I discovered that the language is going to shock many club members to whom it will seem very vulgar. I went by the orders as suggested. Both writers make great play of their protagonists’ gastronomic preferences.

Eventually lines are drawn. I love how Camilleri uses lines from different arias, literature and etc. La storia, per i siciliani, si presenta subito, al suo primo apparire, con la smorfia violenta e assurda della farsa. Aug 31, Utti rated it it was amazing.

La storia, per i siciliani, si presenta subito, al suo primo apparire, con la smorfia violenta e assurda della farsa. I love the book in some ways: This was an added extra when I picked up a few of Camilleri’s “Inspector Montalbano” books from the local library. The first is that obviously you need to understand Italian I shudder to think of the difficulties involved in translating Camilleri’s work and secondly, Camilleri has created a Sicilian dialect of his very own which nevertheless bears great similarity to a modern-day generic Sicilian.

I kept a long note on the side with all the names ever mentioned with short descriptions to remind myself of who those people are.

At first, I had difficulty keep track of the plethora of character names and nicknames, but I quickly found out that only a few key names were crucial to understanding and enjoying this fast-moving farce. Even if it were a popular opera, the many factions opposed to the prefect and his Mafioso chum would object. Andrea is a skilled observ A perfect novel for fans of this author’s writing. He has the backing of the local mafia chieftain and nothing but contempt for the local Sicilians so he proceeds regardless.


The characters are true to their time, but they are also true to being Sicilian; their descendants are alive and well today. Wo ist meine Bestellung? I’ve not read the original Italian for this book, but in the Montalbano series, Camilleri uses a fusion of Italian and Sicilian to help distinguish his characters as Sicilian, and Sartarelli does a masterful job of conveying that distinction.

There is also dissent within prestoj ranks of the new rulers, as republicans and royalists plot against each other.

Si riflette e si ride. It would make a great movie. Just love this book. This is a very funny, very bawdy, “The Brewer of Preston” is a one-off historical novel by Andrea Camilleri, best known for his Montalbano series. Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature inwithout concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories. Yet presfon in tune with the novelist’s narrative and where it is going it becomes a pure delight.

Refresh and try again. As it is, political and personal forces combine and clash to create major problems in Vigata, leading to several unnecessary deaths. The chapters are arranged haphazardly, and Camilleri helpfully suggests in the final chapter “Chapter I” that the ddi should feel free to rearrange them according to taste.

A parte il dialetto veneto che non risco maco a leggere, figuriamoci a capirlo, ho riso troppo con il dialetto fiorentino e quello romano. Aug 09, Fabio added it. Prestno the story is basically one where the local jl feel they have been imposed upon for political motivations to host an unwanted opera on the opening night of their new theatre.

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”. Camilleri is in total control in telling his farcical tale – prestoh is seen from a variety of different character and time perspectives, which adds to the fun; his description of the political machinations are, as ever, well-observed, droll and frightening, as cogs within cogs roll on in a process that no-one totally understands.

I expect this was a very hard book to translate owing to Camilleri’s apparently liberal use of dialect and puns, but Satarelli does his usual excellent job.


Jun 06, arcobaleno rated it liked it Shelves: The very last chapter is actually the first chronologically and when combined with the authors note at the end actually give a great and funny conclusion. Preview — Il birraio di Preston by Andrea Camilleri. In addition to the degree of popularity brought him by the novels, in recent months Andrea Camilleri has become even more 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.

One of the main characters in the novel is Traquandi, a Roman who is a Mazzini or follower of Mazzini, one of the founders of Italy’s Risorgimento or revolution for independence.

Peccato, dopo “Cento giorni con Montalbano” credevo di essermi riconciliata con Camilleri. Non so se lo consiglierei, non mi ha convinto del tutto ol libro. For me this book was hilarious though disorganized. The “frightful night” ends with someone causing the theatre to burn down. A good example of his sense of humor can be found in his ordering, or lack thereof, of the chapters in the book.

For those not familiar with Italian history, Sicily had joined the newly-formed Monarchy of Italy injust 11 years before the events of the novel, and there were plenty of people dissatisfied with the replacement of one monarchy that of the Bourbons with another, the House of Savoy based in the Piedmont of Northern Italy.
