Book Presentation by Santi V. Buscemi - Thursday, July 24th (6:30pm)

An engrossing and moving story, The Marquis of Roccaverdina (1903), is a psychological tour de force, which analyzes the life of a Sicilian aristocrat forced to choose between his passion for a beautiful peasant woman and the demands of a moribund social structure that preclude his marrying below his station.

Attempting to resolve the dilemma, he makes a decision that leads to a life tortured by jealousy, guilt and self-recrimination.
