The complete works of Primo Levi by Primo Levi( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 408 libraries worldwide
"In the works for sixteen years, The Complete Works of Primo Levi is the most ambitious literary translation of the twenty-first century. Primo Levi, the Italian-born chemist once described by Philip Roth as that "quicksilver little woodland creature enlivened by the forest's astute intelligence," has largely been considered a heroic figure in the annals of twentieth-century literature for If This Is a Man, his haunting account of Auschwitz. Yet Levi's body of work extends considerably beyond his experience as a survivor. Now, the transformation of Levi from Holocaust memoirist to one of the twentieth century's greatest writers culminates in this magisterial publication of The Complete Works of Primo Levi, which, twenty-eight years after his premature death in Turin, finally collects all of Levi's fourteen books--memoirs, essays, poetry, and fiction--into three slip-cased volumes, along with new translations, one revised by the original translator, and an introduction by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison. The appearance of this historic publication will occasion a major reappraisal of "one of the most valuable writers of our time" (Alfred Kazin)" --

Tin House by Win McCormack( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
From the website: Donald Barthelme wrote that "The aim of literature ... is the creation of a strange object covered with fur which breaks your heart." This comes across as Karen Russell discusses her reality-bending work, as well as in Kevin Brockmeier's stunning rendering of a modern missionary's peripatetic spiritual journey, "Ryan Shifrin." The legendary Israeli writer and painter, Yorum Kaniuk, semi-autobiographically details his experiences as an ex-Israeli soldier in the heart of New York's golden jazz age. Not to mention Adrienne Rich and Eileen Myles keeping true to Pound's dictum to make it new. We hope that you enjoy these strange, furry things as much as we do
