Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Now back in print, ROGER VAILLAND's atmospheric 1957 novel won the Prix Goncourt, and the Knopf edition was a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club. The grotesque game of the Law, played in the taverns of southern Italy, is but a shadow of an even fiercer attitude to life--a potent metaphor for a vigorously hierarchical view of existence which rules over the "mezzogiorno, the noonday culture of southern Italy. In this novel we are not asked to pardon or condemn the passion of Donna Lucrezia, the assured self-centeredness of the learned aristocrat Don Cesare or even the sinister desires of Matteo Brigante, the controlling godfather.

Rezension: An experience that I will not easily forget -- V S Naipaul

As good a novel as it is tough and relentless -- Evening Standard

It is one of the best novels I have ever read. -- Alexander Chancellor, Sunday Telegraph

One is horrified by this novel but never bored -- Raymond Mortimer, Sunday Times
