Description
The author of The Leopard, one of the most poignant and enduringly popular novels of the 20th century, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa left only a few other pieces of fiction when he died prematurely at the age of 60. This collection, presented in a new translation by Stephen Parkin, gathers all of Lampedusa's extant shorter fiction and also provides a revealing glimpse into the writer's background and the composition of his masterpiece. It includes the novella-length memoir Childhood Memories, as well as "Joy and the Law," "The Siren," and "The Blind Kittens" (the beginning of a sequel to The Leopard), with a photo gallery of Lampedusa's family.

"Lampedusa wrote two masterpieces and this, as bizarre as it sounds, is the other one."—Telegraph (London)
