I just finished this book, "Mattanza" by Theresa Maggio. My son had read it and left it at home. I really enjoyed it.
It is an account of the anicient Sicilian ritual of bluefin tuna fishing. It is set in the town of Favignana, I think I will have to go there some day, where the author observes and gets involved with the colorful tonnaroto or tuna fisherman. Its an interesting tale.
