  Susan Greenfield's nomination 13 October 2004  
Professor Susan Greenfield
Susan Greenfield's choice of Watershed Fiction

Brain expert Baroness Susan Greenfield talks about the novel that speaks to her about women’s lives – and it’s perhaps a surprising choice.

A classic book that chronicles the death throes of an aristocratic family in Sicily - but for her is an entrancing account of relationships, sex and marriage:  The Leopard.

The Leopard
By Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
Translated by Archibald Colquhoun
Published by The Harvill Press
ISBN: 186046145X
