About the book

How would it be if you lost the ability to lie? Especially if you were a woman living in Sicily, in a society founded on secrecy and silence, and above all the silence of women. After a head injury caused by a road accident, Agata Avolio can only tell the truth about her family; about the chemical company she works for; and worst of all, about the way the local community earns its living. The people who really run Sicily will not let this go unpunished. Agatas truth-telling takes a terrible toll on her and on the people she loves, as the Church, the ancient beliefs of Sicily, and the Mafia all bring retribution. Truth and Flies is an intense psychological drama as full of tension as a thriller, lyrically portraying a fierce, heat-drenched world where the highest virtue is to say nothing.
