Today Saviano is a constant presence in the Italian media. He's also kept himself largely in isolation from other anti-Mafia campaigners. This has led to criticism from some on the left. Yet some of his recent statements colour these essays. Over a year ago he praised Italy's hard-line, anti-immigrant home secretary - a member of the racist Northern League which attacks southerners - as the best interior minister Italy's ever had.

Last autumn he joined via video link a pro-Israel rally in Rome, stating, "Israel represents the best example of a state which supports legality and security. Saviano has also praised "the anti-Mafia values of Giorgio Almirante" - a man who served as a minister in Mussolini's final regime, under Nazi occupation, and was the re-founder of the fascist party post Last December he issued an open letter attacking the violence of the mass student movement sweeping Italy - calling for the "bad" protesters to be isolated.

The student movement responded by saying his stand would encourage state repression, and he had nothing to say about the beatings the police administered. Skip to main content.

He never jumped to a solution, but always advanced slowly He examined our daily concerns about taxes, terrorism, schools and health and used them to ask bigger questions. He wanted to explain, freely and to spread information and make it known, but to do this with discipline and control" This is the model Saviano uses as he writes, at all times attempting to avoid both the cynicism that marks many reporters and the focus on elegance and style that detracts others.

His reporting is for ordinary people and he tries to reveal it without frills. Like Biagi, he wants to motivate his readers to take notice, especially of the scores of unsolved deaths occurring around them: "Can you really believe that none of this depends on you, or on your want of indignation?

Do you really think that worrying about your everyday life is enough?

Are you satisfied by the answers to these questions? Does saying "I'm not doing anything wrong; I'm an honest person," allow you to feel innocent? Can you let the news wash over you, over your soul?

Their profit equates to deaths from cancer per year. So this lovely countryside in the South of Italy, namely around Lake Patria, has become an almost Wild-West type of region where the carabinieri and others trying to fight the criminals are threatened or killed, along with many innocents in the way. In other essays he looks at similar issues facing the South of Italy, and at many times incorporating details of the culture of Italy, both ancient and current. Saviano is well-read: he references operas, plays, poetry, and literature in his writing. The pace of the essays are fast even while the details are disheartening.

Seeing how crime is perpetuated as a business, focused on efficiency and results, is hard to accept. One thing that alienated me a bit at first is his Preface, where he describes his efforts to live in hiding. It's off putting at first, as he seems to dwell on his imminent danger and how unafraid he is, given his important sacrifice.

Since I'd never heard of him, it felt like a bit of bravado instead of reality. Yet, after I read the essays, I totally get it.

I would hide too, and I now can respect that he has made tremendous, unimaginable sacrifices in the pursuit of truth. I just think it would have appeared better as an Epilogue than hitting the reader with all that indignation right up front. Here at Walmart.
