"This book, the first full-length English-language study of Pavese in twenty years, examines his life and the evolution of his views of America through a chronological reading of his works." "Combining biography and literary analysis, Lawrence G. Smith illuminates Pavese's life and also his tragic death, precipitated by a brief failed love affair with Constance Dowling, an American movie actress fifteen years his junior. Although he barely knew Dowling, her departure from Italy in April 1950 triggered Pavese's long-latent suicidal impulses', and he killed himself four months later."--Jacket." ;
