"Not so long ago Emilio Brentani was a promising young author. Now he is an insurance agent on the fast track to forty. He gains a new lease on life, though, when he falls for the young and gorgeous Angiolina-except that his angel just happens to be an unapologetic cheat. But what begins as a comedy of infatuated misunderstanding ends in tragedy, as Emilio's jealous persistence in his folly-against his friends' and devoted sister's advice, and even his own best knowledge-leads to the loss of the one person who, too late, he realizes he truly loves. Marked by deep humanity and earthy humor, by psychological insight and an elegant simplicity of style, As a Man Grows Older (Senilit̉, in Italian; the English title was the suggestion of Svevo's great friend and admirer, James Joyce) is a brilliant study of hopeless love and hapless indecision. It is a masterwork of Italian literature, here beautifully rendered into English in Beryl de Zoete's classic translation"--Publisher's description

The failure of both his attempts at writing and at love lead to an ironic and painful conclusion."--BOOK JACKET

The nice old man and the pretty girl and other stories by Italo Svevo( Book )
58 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 342 libraries worldwide
... The sin of an old man is equal to about two sins of a young man. The fable-like story of an old man's sexual obsession with a young woman is a distillation of Italo Svevo's concerns--attraction of an older man to a younger woman, individual conscience versus social convention, and the cost of sexual desire. This novella is a marvel of psychological insight, following the man's vacillations and tortuous self-justifications to their tragic-comic end. It is presented here in a translation first commissioned and published by Virginia Woolf for her Hogarth Press. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.

I racconti by Italo Svevo( Book )
27 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 204 libraries worldwide
Il libro è una raccolta dei racconti che Svevo scrisse durante la sua lunga attività letteraria interrotta purtroppo dall'inciedente stradale in cui perse la vita il 13 settembre del 1928. Le tematiche trattate sono quelle che lui ha affrontato in tutti i suoi romanzi: la condizione dell'uomo comune, del piccolo borgherse, la sua mediocrità, i suoi vizi e le sue abitudini. Per questo l'uomo sveviano può essere definito un antieroe, un uomo senza qualità che non sa vivere come e con gli altri ma che però è pienamente consapevole del proprio fallimento. Dunque i protagonisti dei romanzi di Svevo sono dei vinti, vittime non tanto degli eventi, spesso i più comuni, che qualunque persona sana saprebbe affrontare a proprio vantaggio, bensì sono vittime del Caso o delle strutture sociali
