Born in Palermo in 1896, Giuseppe di Lampedusa was a cosmopolitan Sicilian prince who married a Baltic noblewoman and had lived in London and Paris, but who nevertheless was tied strongly to the island of his birth. He knew several languages well and had read in the original the best of all European literature. In his palace in Palermo he met regularly with a group of young friends to study French literature, and, to the last, his days were spent in readings and discussions with his wife and friends. For twenty-five years Lampedusa meditated a novel based on the figure of his paternal great-grandfather and set in Sicily during the Garibaldian era. Yet he was sixty before he finally began to write it, and he completed it only a few months before his death. Shortly before he died in 1957, he was told by an Italian editor that his novel was unpublishable. It was not until many months later that an unsigned copy of his manuscript reached an enthusiastic editor, whose prompt inquiries brought to light the story behind the prince who never published anything in his lifetime, but left a masterpiece after his death.
