Re: RARA-AVIS: Leonardo Sciascia and others

Al, the only one I've read recently is Shane Maloney. He's Australian and his main character is a politician's aide, an amateur sleuth. They are neither noir nor hardboiled but they do have humor and depict pretty well the workings of politics and politicians.

Scerbanenco is Italian. I remember reading one of his books but the memory is very faint. I have the feeling it was hardboiled though.

Izzo I've never read but isn't he the one who killed himself a few years back trying to test a method of killing for one of his books and falling from his window to his death in the process? I think he's hardboiled.
