Literary touches include many fresh and appropriate metaphors and similes.
The echos rattling in a narrow passageway between stone buildings until it sounded like a hysterical mob on our heels.The literary style is also demonstrated in the title: Blood Alone. Mussolini said:
Blood alone moves the wheels of history.The Sicilians only trust blood relatives. The wine becomes blood when served by the priests.
A real pleasure to read.
