Two Stories and A Memory
Giuseppe di Lampedusa
Two Stories and a Memory
New York: Pantheon, 1962.
With a meditation from E. M. Forster, by way of an introduction, this book is required reading for those under the spell of The Leopard, di Lampedusa's only novel.
Themes of loss and longing for times past haunted his life and provided the raw emotion behind his delicate writing. With photographs of some of the beautiful houses that inspired the work.
Book has slight discoloration to front cover and jacket is rubbed at corners, otherwise good.
