The four novellas in Sicilian Uncles (1958) political thrillers of a kind - are the first fruits of Sciascias maturity.

In these stories, illusions about ideology and history are lost in mirth, in suffering, and innocence is abandoned. Each novella has its historical moment: the Allied invasion of Sicily, the Spanish Civil War, the death of Stalin, the events of 1948. These occasions and their consequences are registered in the lives of Sciascias wonderfully drawn characters.

Each has voice, wit, and a private history which open out onto the wider circumstances of his time, and hint towards the later work of Sciascia.
