Reviews

  • There is a great feeling of opulence, decay, love and death about it

    Rick Stein
  • 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
