INCLUDES RECENTLY DISCOVERED NEW MATERIAL

In the spring of 1860, Fabrizio, the charismatic Prince of Salina, still rules over thousands of acres and hundreds of people, including his own numerous family, in mingled splendour and squalor. Then comes Garibaldi's landing in Sicily and the Prince must decide whether to resist the forces of change or come to terms with them.

Review:

"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)

"Perhaps the greatest novel of the century" (L.P. Hartley)

"One of the great lonely books...not a historical novel, but a novel which happens to take place in history" (E.M. Forster)

"The poetry of Lampedusa's novel flows into the Sicilian countryside...a work of great artistry" (Peter Ackroyd)

"I was astounded by the power of the writing" (Corin Redgrave)

From the Publisher:

A new hardback edition of what L. P. Hartley described as "perhaps the greatest novel of the [twentieth] century", containing for the first time the full original text.
