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.
