Some brief overview of book

"A wondrously joyous account of travel as it should be." Publishers Weekly A travel narrative that focuses on Sicily's little-known regions, from the author of Seeking Sicily and Hidden Tuscany. From Palermo to Castiglione di Sicilia to Alimena, Sicily holds great secrets from the past and unspoken promises. Tradition, in the form of festivals, the written word, photographs, and song, reverberates through village walls.

Now, slowly shaking itself free of the Mafia, Sicily is opening itself up to visitors in ways it never has before. Sicilian Splendors explores the history, politics, food, Mafia, and people which John Keahey encounters throughout his travels during his return to Sicily. Through conversing with natives and immersing himself in culture, Keahey illustrates a brand new Sicily no one has ever talked about before.

Villagers, eager to welcome tourism and impart awareness of their cultural background, greet Keahey for meals and drink and walk him through their winding streets. They share stories of well-known writers, such as Maria Messina, who have found inspiration in Sicilys villages. Keaheys never-ending curiosity as a traveler shines light on Sicilys mythical mysteries and portrays the island not only through his eyes but also through Sicilys heart.

This picturesque travel memoir navigates Sicily today and seeks to understand Sicilys past. In lyrical prose and vivid dialect, Keahey paints images of the islands villages, people, and culture with careful strokes and a meticulously even hand. Keahey not only serves as a guide through the marvel of Sicilys identity, but he also looks deeply into Sicilys soul.
