One Book and Why

One Book and Why: Graphic Designer Louise Fili Recommends . . .

By Louise Fili March 23, 2023

In this installment of “One Book and Why,” graphic designer Louise Fili recommends a political/historical novel in translation by contemporary Italian author Andrea Camilleri (1925–2019): The Revolution of the Moon.

The Revoluton of the Moon by Andrea Camilleri (Europa Editions, 2017).

About this inspirational tale, based on a true story, of an “exceptional woman who rises to power in 17th-century Sicily and brings about sweeping changes that threaten the iron-fisted patriarchy, before being cast out in a coup after only 27 days,” Fili says:

“Camilleri was an extraordinary writer and this is the best place to start.”

By Andrea Camilleri
Translated by Stephen Sartarelli
Paperback, 208 pages (also published as ebook), 2017
