Product Description

The bestselling author of the Inspector Montalbano series brings us back to VigÌÊta in the nineteenth century for a rip-roaring comic novel.

From Andrea Camilleri, the bestselling author of the Inspector Montalbano mysteries, comes The Brewer of Preston, a hilarious standalone comedy.

1870s Sicily. Much to the displeasure of VigÌÊta's stubborn populace, the town has just been unified under the Kingdom of Italy. They're now in the hands of a new government they don't understand, and they definitely don't like.

Eugenio Bortuzzi has been named Prefect for VigÌÊta, a regional representative from the Italian government tasked to oversee the town. But the rowdy and unruly Sicilians don't care much for this rather pompous mainlander nor the mediocre opera he's hell-bent on producing in their new municipal theatre. The Brewer of Preston, it's called, and the VigÌÊtese are revving up to wreak havoc on the performance's opening night . . .

Andrea Camilleri was one of Italy‰۪s most famous contemporary writers. The Inspector Montalbano series, which has sold over 65 million copies worldwide, has been translated into thirty-two languages and was adapted for Italian television, screened on BBC4. The Potter‰۪s Field, the thirteenth book in the series, was awarded the Crime Writers‰۪ Association‰۪s International Dagger for the best crime novel translated into English. In addition to his phenomenally successful Inspector Montalbano series, he was also the author of the historical comic mysteries Hunting Season and The Brewer of Preston. He died in Rome in July 2019.
