A Leopard's Kiss

Marisa Fazio

From the mountains of an ancient Sicilian village, to the ornate cafes and

lounges of Palermo...

From the humid North Queensland cane-fields, to a Catholic convent in

Melbourne’s north...

A Leopard’s Kiss entwines two dreamlike stories of change and becoming. 

In a time of upheaval, Tomasi di Lampedusa, the last Prince in a long and

noble Sicilian line, endures the frustration and joy of writing his famous

novel, The Leopard, whilst nearby a young couple farewell their home to

settle in far-off Australia. 

Beautifully written in a sparkling and poetic style,

A Leopard’s Kiss provides a vivid new account of the pathos of migration
