Description on Dust Jacket:
The brilliance and understanding with which Carlo Levi writes about southern Italy are well known to all readers of Christ Stopped at Eboli. Words Are Stones deals with his impressions and experiences from journeys he made to Sicily. This book is an illuminating account of Sicily, of its landscape and of the characteristic life of its people, the emphasis being all the time on their ignorance, their backwardness, their appalling poverty, and, at the same time, their graciousness. Signor Levi writes extremely well; he is capable of fine descriptive passages as well as of the mere reporting of facts, and also he has a sense of humor.
