Recounting the archaic beliefs of rural Corsica, with its witchcraft and its vendetta system, viewing Genoese architecture, or commenting on the modern "pleasure invasion", this book also evokes the scenery, the mountains and olive trees, the heady scent of the maquis and the austere beauty of the granite villages of Corsica. This book won the Heinemann Prize.
