In sun-drenched Sicily, among the decadent Italian aristocracy of the late 1950s, Giuseppe Tomasi, the last prince of Lampedusa, struggles to complete the novel that will be his lasting legacy, The Leopard. With a firm devotion to the historical record, Lampedusa leaps effortlessly into the mind of the writer and inhabits the complicated heart of a man facing down the end of his life, struggling to make something of lasting worth, while there is still time.

I would say this book is not for everyone; I'm not sure it was for me, even. It is very slow unfurling history of an interesting and yet unremarkable life that is soon to end. There are many poignant and tender moments and it is the love of the main character for the few, close people in his life that resonates.
