Places of my Infancy: A Memory

13572663I am sure most of you have read the great Italian novel “The Leopard” by Giuseppe Tomasi de Lampedusa (and seen the great film with Burt Lancaster and Claudia Cardinale).

This little book is Lampedusa’s remembrances of the house in southern Italy where he grew up. It is a beautiful piece of writing, filled with love and nostalgia. I chose it as the “little book” I give my family and friends over the Holidays. I think everyone should indulge in this masterpiece at this time of the year.

Happy Holidays to everyone at the Virtual Dinner Party.
