Description - The Leopard (Vintage Classic Europeans Series) by Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
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
