Some brief overview of book

"Combining a British accent with seamless Italian pronunciation, Jonathan Aris's slow and steady narration lends an appropriate tone of dignity and melancholy to Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's account of a lifetime of memories and tragedies." - AudioFile Magazine Like Colm Tóibíns The Master or Michael Cunninghams The Hours, a novel about art and writing in the life of one of the greats. Set in a sun-drenched Sicily, among the decadent Italian aristocracy of the late 1950s, Steven Prices Lampedusa explores the final years of Giuseppe Tomasi, the last prince of Lampedusa, as he struggles to complete his only novel, The Leopard. In 1955, Tomasi was diagnosed with advanced emphysema; shortly after, he began work on a novel that would fail to be published before his death four years later.

When The Leopard at last appeared, it won Italys Strega Prize and became the greatest Italian novel of the century. Adhering intensely to the facts of Tomasi's life but moving deep into the mind of the author, Lampedusa inhabits the complicated interior of a man facing down the end of his life and struggling to make something of lasting worth while there is still time.
