A NovelStreaming Audiobook - 2015
The New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Montalbano series brings us back to Vig̉ta in the nineteenth century for a rip-roaring comic novel.1870s, Sicily. Much to the displeasure of Vig̉ta's stubborn populace, the town has just been unified under the Kingdom of Italy. They're now in the hands of a new government they don't understand and definitely don't like. Eugenio Bortuzzi has been named prefect for Vig̉ta, a regional representative from the Italian government to oversee the town. But the rowdy and unruly Sicilians don't care much for this rather pompous mainlander nor the mediocre opera he's hell-bent on producing in their new municipal theater. The Brewer of Preston, it's called, and the Vigatese are revving up to wreak havoc on the performance's opening night.
