The Honoured Society

It wasn't until after I finished reading In Sicily that I realised Norman Lewis was into his nineties when he wrote it, travelling round the arid old Mafia strongholds of the interior in a beaten-up Fiat. Cyril Connolly once said Lewis' writing style could make even a lorry seem interesting. He wasn't wrong.

Hadn't heard of that book, but I'll look out for it now.

If the HUDC thing gets put back again, you're free to borrow it.
