My 2,000th Book
Anyway so the award goes to The Revolution of the Moon, by Andrea Camilleri, an Italian best known for his Inspector Montalbano procedural crime novels. This book is a departure for him, historical fiction about Eleanora de Mourra, who ruled Sicily for just 27 days before the Catholic Church brought her down.
Like many if not all of Camilleri's books it's set in Sicily but not the present-day Sicily of his crime series; this book is set in 1677 and includes all kinds of intrigue and shenanigans. Sounds like fun! It comes out from Europa Editions in April.
