This book is the first comprehensive introduction to Levi and his writing for English-speaking readers. The author draws attention to the literary worth of Levi's entire output - not just the Holocaust testimonies for which he is primarily known - and situates his works in the context of Italian culture and society from the 1920s to the 1980s. A man with many identities - chemist, industrial manager and writer - he tried, through his writing, to build bridges between different cultures and fields of enquiry."@en ;
