What I’m reading right now – Gomorrah

Good book. Well worth getting for a read. Much more immediate than Dickie’s work on the mafia, but less scholarly and polished. Dickie is the Irish Times, and Saviano is the Indo. If the Irish Times did investigative journalism, that is. Which it doesn’t.

Dreams from my father

Gomorrah

Anyway – Saviano really spins out a good line, and I’ll have to read this in the Italian because apparently there’s a lot lost in the translation.
