Using an array of cultural records from 1990 to the current, together with diaries, tales, fiction, on-line video postings, and anti-mafia social networks, Robin Pickering-Iazzi examines the myths, values, codes of behaviour, and relationships produced by way of the Italian mafia via a large cross-disciplinary lens. The Mafia in Italian Lives and Literature explores the ways in which those literary engagements with the mafia relate to broader modern Italian existence and provide implicit demanding situations, and a quiet code of resistance, to the trauma and injustice wrought by way of the mafia in quite a few Italian cities.

Despite the lengthy culture of representing the mafia in Italian literature, in the past women’s contributions to this literature were missed. Pickering-Iazzi’s goal is to inspire new serious mirrored image on a broader collection of literature via new theoretical lenses which will increase our knowing of crime fiction, Sicily and Sicilian identification in literature, narrative qualities of the hot Italian epic, and the cultural and social features of storytelling in existence and literature.
