View all copies of this ISBN edition:

An American couple “of a certain age” circle the coast of Sicily, from sinister corners of Palermo to the mountain peaks of Taormina, to Catania and smoldering Mount Aetna, to Siracusa and the art colony of Ortygia, to Noto for the annual flower festival, on to Agrigento and its corridor of Greek ruins, to marvelous Marsala, and back to Palermo. They observe traces of all the historical invaders of Sicily -- Phoenicians, Arabs, Greeks, Turks, Romans, Normans, Spanish -- now distilled in today's Sicilians who personify a long history that wars could not destroy. Every day in every town Leita and Bob find delightful characters, unique food (no spaghetti and meatballs here), awesome sights, and insights into the island's perennial social and economic challenges. Through these adventures they also discover facets of each other that deepen their mutual respect and love.
