The Leopard, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa

 

Naked Masks and Other Plays by Luigi Pirandello

Sicilian Uncles, Leonardo Sciascia

Greene on Capri, Shirley Hazzard

 

Lampedusa's (1896 - 1957 (61)) book "Il Gattopardo" (accurately translated as Ocelot or Serval) is set in the Risorgimento and only became published and famous after his death.

 

 

Pirandello (1867 - 1936 (69)) - Sicily's Nobel Prizewinning Playwright (from Agrigento).

 

Sciascia (1921 - 1989 (68)) - the ultimate Sicilian short stories - especially about crime.

 

This is a wonderful book by one quality writer about another.
