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


Beautifully written in a sparkling and poetic style,  A

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

of migration
