Perhaps the greatest novel of the century -- L.P. Hartley
One of the great lonely books...not a historical novel, but a novel which happens to take place in history -- E.M. Forster
The poetry of Lampedusa's novel flows into the Sicilian countryside...a work of great artistry -- Peter Ackroyd
I was astounded by the power of the writing -- Corin Redgrave
