Product Description

Review

'A man with the deep soul of an Old European, who was wise and witty.' -- The lady

'This is a bundle of his short fiction and (the pearl) his memories of his childhood in a lost world of almost unimaginable privilege and beauty.' -- The Times

'Lampedusa wrote two masterpieces and this, as bizarre as it sounds, is the other one.' -- The Telegraph

'Parkin's translation does justice to Lampedusa's elegant, elaborate prose… The prose flows with the allegro and cadences of a Mozart piano composition.' --Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, Duke of Palma and Prince of Lampedusa, was born in Palermo in 1896. Other than three articles that appeared in an obscure Italian journal in 1926 - 27, Lampedusa was unpublished in his own lifetime. He began The Leopard, his only novel, in 1954, at the age of fifty-eight. When he died aged sixty-one, the completed manuscript of The Leopard had received only rejections from publishers.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This new translation is an excellent purchase, even though it overlaps the earlier version of much of its contents that was included in the Everyman volume of The Prince. It is quite fine.
