Publisher Description

The Vintage Classics Europeans series - with covers provided by textile design firm Wallace Sewell, these are must-have editions of European masterpieces, celebrating the warp and weft of a shared literary treasury It is the spring of 1869 and there is talk of revolution in Sicily, by day the rattle of firing squads and by night the flickering lights of bonfires lit by rebel bands. Prince Fabrizio knows that beneath these outward signs of transformation, the sensuality, languor and corruption of his native land will never change. But can his family?s ancient power endure? Lampedusa?s macabre myth remains astounding relevant, reflecting any modern edifice of power and money just as surely as it shows us a corner of Italy long ago. TRANSLATED FROM THE ITALIAN BY ARCHIBALD COLQUHOUN 'Beguiling...irresistible...The Leopard will continue to ensnare minds, and not only in Italy? Guardian

Author Biography

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa was a Sicilian nobleman, Duke of Parma and Prince of Lampedusa. He was born in Palermo in 1896 and died in Rome in 1957. He lived the life of a literary dilettante, was familiar with the great literatures of the world, and was widely travelled. Much of Lampedusa's other work is collected in The Siren and Other Writings.

Review

A great book Observer The poetry of Lampedusa's novel flows into the Sicilian countryside...a work of great artistry -- Peter Ackroyd Every once in a while, like certain golden moments of happiness, infinitely memorable, one stumbles on a book or a writer, and the impact is like an indelible mark. Lampedusa's The Leopard, his only novel, and a masterpiece, is such a work Independent There is a great feeling of opulence, decay, love and death about it -- Rick Stein
