Outstanding book, set in Italy in the 1860s, during the time of Garibaldi and the Red Shirts- when Italy was moving toward becoming a unified state, rather than run by wealthy princes, etc. The Prince- The Leopard- is a bigger than life person and the story is engrossing. A movie was made some years ago,very true to the novel, with the Leopard well-played by Burt Lancaster. Gorgeous scenery, and sense of history.
