Andrea Camilleri 

BIOS

ANDREA CAMILLERI is the author of many books, including his Montalbano series, which has been adapted for Italian television and translated into German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, and finally, English. He was born at Porto Empedocle, near Agrigento. His style is very particular as he mixes Italian and local dialect without however making it unreadable for those who are not from that part of Italy. Camilleri has won numerous homestigious literary awards in Italy as well as in France. He is married with three children and four grandchildren, and lives in Rome.


STEPHEN SARTARELLI was awarded the 2001 Ralziss-De Palchi Prize of the Academy of American Poets for Songbook: Selected Poems of Umberto Saba and the 2002 John Florio Prize of the British Society of Authors for his translation of Prince of the Clouds by Gianni Riotta. He is the author of three books of poetry, most recently, The Open Vault.

22 Episodes of Montalbano Available on DVD
