This new translation into English of the acclaimed writer's final
detective story serves as the perfect introduction to an important
Italian writer. Published just before the author's death, this
novella refines and condenses Sciascia's analysis of corrupt
systems and the crucial part they play in Sicily's politics and
society. In a small Sicilian town, a young and inexperienced
policeman receives a strange phone call from a retired diplomat. On
investigating the matter, he finds the diplomat dead. What at first
appears to be a simple case of suicide threatens to turn into a
much more intricate situation, as the mounting investigation
implicates pillars of the community. 'A Simple Story' is here
published alongside 'Candido', a novella inspired by Voltaire's
masterpiece Candide, the story of a naive young man making his way
in the world.
