Read full description of the books:



"A miniature masterpiece [by] one of the most distinctive voices in 20th-century European literature."--The New York Times Book Review

From one of modern Italy's greatest writers come four flawless novellas that combine history and fiction while mapping the treacherous relations between individuals and the state. Whether set amid the paranoia of the fascist past or the criminal and political labyrinths of present-day Italy, the novellas in Open Doors are thrillers of Kafkaesque moral gravity, beautifully written and relentlessly engrossing.

"During the last quarter century, Sciascia has made of his curious Sicilian experience a literature that is not quite like anything else ever done by a European."--Gore Vidal

"Sciascia has claimed a niche in the critical pantheon comparable to [that of] Pirandello and Borges."--Washington Post Book World

"Combining fiction, historical meditation, philosophy and intellectual detective work . . . these novels [are] a poignant gleam of the elusive gold standard in literature."--Newsday

"Our century's most brilliant writer-detective."--Village Voice

Read information about the author

Ebook Open Doors and Three Novellas read Online! Leonardo Sciascia (1921-1989) wrote of his unique Sicilian experience, linking families with political parties, the treachery of alliances and allegiances and the calling of favours that resort in outcomes that are not for the benefit of society, but of those individuals who are in favour.

Sciascia perhaps, in the end, wanted to prove that the corruption that was and is endemic in Italian society helps only those who are part of the secret societies and loyalties and the political classes.
