The Wine-Dark Sea collects 13 short stories, all set in the writer's native Sicily and featuring mafiosi, carabinieri and villagers. Leonardo Sciascia's dispassionate, unflinching approach to his two perennial subjects, Sicily and the mafia, earned him his literary reputation (and his political notoriety).
