Author and his books on Palermo and SyracuseThe publication of Palermo, City of Kings was celebrated on April 29th with a book launch at Daunt Books, Holland Park, London. The event was attended by over 70 guests, including a number from Sicily, together with representatives from I.B Tauris, the publisher.

Also on display was the author’s previous book, Syracuse, City of Legends, which had just been released in paperback.

In his presentation of his book on Palermo, Jeremy talked about how Palermo is underrated internationally. “For its wealth of history and its world class monuments,” he said, “it should be counted among the foremost historic cities of Italy. It’s a city of character and originality, not yet swamped with visitors, and has something for everyone”.
