Abstract:

"During the course of more than twenty-five years, Primo Levi gave over two hundred newspaper, journal, radio, and television interviews, speaking with figures as varied as Philip Roth and Germaine Greer. Thirty-six of the most important of these interviews - selected by Marco Belpoliti and Robert Gordon, with many translated into English for the first time - appear in The Voice of Memory." "We recognize here the familiar voice of Levi's masterpieces, from Survival in Auschwitz to The Drowned and the Saved. But we also encounter a fuller, more complex picture of the writer who was famously shrouded in his past. We see Levi the Holocaust witness alongside Levi the writer, the chemist, the intellectual, the polemicist, and the atheist and Jew, embracing his Jewish culture as he rejects a faith he could not share." "Levi stunningly emerges in a rich, contradictory, and essentially human light - he was a classic figure out of place. As he himself states, "I am an amphibian, a centaur . . . I live with this paranoiac split." Perhaps the most important of the Holoaust's survivor-writers, Levi's stature is still further enhanced by the remarkable voices speaking in this remarkable book."--BOOK JACKET.
