Death of Napoleon The
Leys Simon

Paperback $19.95 - Black Inc
Fiction - Published: 25/Sep/2006 - ISBN: 9781863953344

"In this deliciously sardonic fable, Napoleon Bonaparte escapes from imprisonment on the isle of St. Helena. Leys writes an elegant, precise prose that ironically evokes the Napoleonic age. His exquisite tale, a gem of a book, can be read as a parable on the folly of hero-worship, the perils of self- justifying notions of destiny and the vanity of all human striving." - Publisher's Weekly

This is a new edition of the award-winning novel, out of print now for several years. The Death of Napoleon is now a motion picture, and this edition contains a new preface by the author.
