"Written by a Sicilian prince who died in 1957 thinking his work would never be published, this novel seems destined to take its place among the classics of world literature."
Set in 1880's Sicily - a time of many changes in the life of the "Leopard." Interesting to see the changes in government, family, classes from his perspective. Like watching a slow motion train wreck. Very interesting book. Was also made into a movie with Burt Lancaster. This is a very old, fragile copy.
