An article published by Le Monde about the death of Italian writer Antonio Tabucchi.
Leonardo Sciascia (Racalmuto, Sicily, January 8, 1921 - Palermo, November 20, 1989)
“A number of his books demonstrate how the Mafia manages to sustain itself in the face of the anomie inherent in Sicilian life: The Day of the Owl and Equal Danger being amongst the most powerful.
His forensic analysis of the kidnapping and assassination of Aldo Moro, a prominent Christian Democrat, in his book The Moro Affair is masterly. His work is intricate and displays a longing for justice attempting to show how corrupt Italian society had become and remains.
His linking of politicians, intrigue, and the Mafia gave him a high profile, which was very much at odds with his private self”.
