'Andrew and Suzanne Edwards have created a colourful switchback of quotation and commentary which repeatedly astonishes us with Sicily's differing reservoirs of experience, so that we do find ourselves asking: is there anything Sicily has not seen and does not know?'
--(Duncan Fallowell, The Spectator
'Sicily has everything a traveller could desire. There are innumerable excellent guides to it, but this is the ideal travelling companion, with its unique interweaving of everything that has contributed to Sicily's profound influence on art, literature, history and philosophy...' --(Country Life
'Sicily is full of such delicious anecdotes: it is not only a literary signpost for travellers in an ancient island, but a cultural guide for anyone who finds themselves in the infuriating thrall of its contradictory and compelling extremes... Sicily is bound to become battered and dog-eared, blotched with caponata and wine stains.' --Clarissa Hyman, Times Literary Supplement
'a wonderful text on the literary diversity of the island.' --Giles Foden, Conde Nast Traveller
