Staff Recommendation: The Leopard

A beautiful novel that takes place in Sicily during the 1860's. The characters and writing style both work together to create a moving and expressive picture of the turbulence taking place in the midst of the aristocracy during this time. Both tragic and colorful, this is a difficult title to pass up for lovers of Italy. For anyone interested in historical fiction or Italy

The Leopard, by Giuseppe Di Lampedusa
