520    In the last two years of his life, the Sicilian aristocrat
       Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, in addition to his 
       internationally celebrated novel, The Leopard, also 
       composed three shorter pieces of fiction that confirm and 
       expand our picture of his brilliant late-blooming talent. 
       In the parable-like "Joy and the Law," a mediocre clerk in
       receipt of an unexpected supplement to his Christmas bonus
       (an awkwardly outsize version of the traditional 
       panettone) finds his visions of domestic bliss upset by 
       unwritten rules of honor and obligation. At the heart of 
       the collection stands "The Siren" and its redoubtable hero,
       Professor La Ciura, the only Hellenist scholar to claim 
       firsthand experience of ancient Greek'from the mouth of 
       the beautiful half-human sea creature he loved in his 
       youth. The volume closes with the last piece of writing 
       completed by the author, "The Blind Kittens," a story 
       originally conceived as the first chapter of a follow-up 
       to The Leopard, a novel that would have traced the post-
       unification emergence of a new agrarian ruling class in 
       Sicily, coarser than its predecessor but equally blind to 
       the inexorable march of change. This elegant new 
       translation of Lampedusa's complete short fiction, the 
       first by a single hand, updates and corrects previously 
       available English versions.
