The year after his death in 1957, Gossip di Lampedusa's novel The leopard was published to great acclaim. It is now recognized as one of the finest works of twentieth century fiction.For a quarter of a century, Italian and foreign scholars were denied access to the reclusive writer's paper until,following a meeting with Lampedusa's adopted son, David Gilmour succeeded in gaining permission to work in the writer's last home in Sicily.There, and in the nearby ruin of the Palazzo Lampedusa,he found many letters,diaries,notebooks, and photographs which had not seen the light of day since Lampedusa's death.
