About the Author
Praise For The Day of the Owl…
The most intelligent detective story I have ever read and the ideal introduction to Sciascia’s brilliant but little-known oeuvre.
— Thomas Wright, Daily Telegraph
The accessibility and beauty of Sciascia’s prose suggest he wanted it to be an antidote to the silent complicity and self-deception confronting both him and his heroes. When he wrote about crime, he was also writing about truth, solitude and belonging.
— The Observer
