    Leopard in the Sun was a real treat, and I think magic realist fiction enthusiasts will enjoy it After reading the first sentence on the dust jacket, I couldn t wait to devour this one Imagine the Sicilian history of The Godfather rewritten by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, or West Side Story reinterpreted by Isabel Allende, and you have a sense of Laura Restrepo s unforgettable novel of the maki
