    A beautiful hardback edition of the great Italian classic, a story of opulence and decay in the Sicilian countryside.

    In the spring of 1860, Fabrizio, the charismatic Prince of Salina, still rules over thousands of acres and hundreds of people, including his own numerous family, in mingled splendour and squalor. Then comes Garibaldi's landing in Sicily and the Prince must decide whether to resist the forces of change or come to terms with them.

    'There is a great feeling of opulence, decay, love and death about it' Rick Stein

    'The poetry of Lampedusa's novel flows into the Sicilian countryside...a work of great artistry' Peter Ackroyd
