Giangiacomo Feltrinelli was one of the most glamorous international publishers of his generation, yet he died violently, as a member of an ultra-left group attempting to blow up an electricity pylon. Born into enormous wealth he found himself equally attracted to great books and revolutionary politics. Feltrinelli sponsored two great post-war novels - Boris Pasternak's "Dr Zhivago" and "The Leopard" by Giuseppe di Lampedusa. Despite the KGB, Pasternak smuggled his manuscript to Feltrinelli out of the USSR, and the editors correspondence with this beseiged writer is relayed in this memoir. In this work, his son looks back over Giangiacomo's life.
