Sicilian Summer: A Story of Honour, Religion and the Perfect Cassata by Brian Johnston
Allen & Unwin | 2007 | ISBN: 1741147352 | 300 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Irresistible and delicious, this multifaceted travelogue delves deep into summer in Sicily—complete with all the passion, power, politics, and pasta of the Italian island. After accepting an invitation to attend a confirmation in Sicily, author Brian Johnston naively expects little more than the chance to immerse himself in genuine southern Italian hospitality and, of course, the vibrant tastes, smells, flavors, and rituals of Sicilian food. What Johnston encounters and describes is flamboyant family drama, dangerous village politics, and eccentric local personalities—all while painting a fascinating picture of contemporary Italy.

Kalifornien zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die Region steht noch unter spanischer Herrschaft. Tyrannische Gesetzeshüter und ausbeuterische Großgrundbesitzer halten ein strenges Regime, das nichts und niemanden verschont. Die armen Bauern schon gar nicht; aber auch die katholischen Mönche sind vor Verfolgung nicht sicher. Aber es gibt einen, der der Tyrannei den Kampf angesagt hat: Zorro. Immer maskiert taucht der Reiter mal hier, mal dort auf.

My Life in the Bush of Ghosts

Both Brian Eno and David Byrne had, for a number of years, been interested in non- Western music styles, particularly those of sub-Saharan African of the Arabic cultural sphere; In the Talking Heads /Eno records, such influences function implicitly, but on the album 'My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts' they became explicit.

Over Rhythmic and harmonic backing tracks, played by Eno, Byrne and eleven other musicians, Eno and Byrne superimposed taped voices from a variety of sources. 'It's almost collage music, like grafting a piece of one culture onto a piece of another onto a piece of another, and trying to make them work as a coherent musical idea, and also trying to make something you can dance to' mentioned Eno."

The title of the album is inspired by Amos Tutuola's novel with the same title.
