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. 

Perfect bound softcover book with red foil pattern
