Roberto Saviano's site

I just discovered that Roberto Saviano has a site, which includes an English-language version. Check it out.

In case you haven't been paying attention, whippersnapper Saviano has written an outstanding expose' called Gomorrah, dealing with the loathsome Neapolitan mob known as the Camorra (the title is a play on words). For his pains he is now under police protection. The movie made from the book, directed by Matteo Garrone, has just received the Grand Jury prize at the Cannes film festival.

I highly recommend his book to all and sundry.
