    The Periodic Table by Primo Levi is an impassioned response to the Holocaust: Consisting of 21 short stories, each possessing the name of a chemical element, the collection tells of the author's experiences as a Jewish-Italian chemist before, during, and after Auschwitz in luminous, clear, and unfailingly beautiful prose. It has been named the best science book ever by the Royal Institution of Great Britain and is considered to be Levi's crowning achievement.

    In If This Is a Man Primo Levi describes his deportation to Poland and his 20 months in Auschwitz. In The Truce he describes his long journey to Italy at the end of the war through Russia and Central Europe. 'What has survived in Levi's writing isn't just his memory of the unbearable, but also... his delight in what made the world exquisite to him. He was himself a magically endearing man, the most delicately forceful enchanter I've ever known.' (Philip Roth)

    "La nostra lingua manca di parole per esprimere questa offesa, la demolizione di un uomo". Con ostinazione e pacatezza, Primo Levi non ha mai smesso di cercare le parole per raccontare l'atrocità della deportazione e del campo di sterminio di Auschwitz, in cui venne internato dal febbraio 1944 al 27 gennaio 1945. Parole di testimonianza sconvolgente e di grande potenza narrativa che vengono qui accolte e restituite ad alta voce da Roberto Saviano.

    "Accanto al sollievo liberatorio che è proprio del reduce che racconta, provavo ora nello scrivere un piacere complesso, intenso e nuovo, simile a quello sperimentato da studente nel penetrare l'ordine solenne del calcolo differenziale. Era esaltante cercare e trovare, o creare, la parola giusta, cioè commisurata, breve e forte; ricavare le cose dal ricordo, e descriverle col massimo rigore e il minimo ingombro. Paradossalmente, il mio bagaglio di memorie atroci diventava una ricchezza, un seme; mi pareva, scrivendo, di crescere come una pianta."

    Durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Primo Levi, vingt-quatre ans, juif, lutte aux côtés des maquisards antifascistes du Piémont. Capturé en 1943, il se retrouve peu après à Auschwitz, où il demeurera plus d'un an avant d'être libéré par l'armée russe en janvier 1945. Au camp, il observe tout. Il se souviendra de tout, racontera tout : la promiscuité des blocks-dortoirs, les camarades qu'on y découvre à l'aube, morts de froid et de faim ; les humiliations et le travail quotidiens, sous les coups de trique des kapos.

    This first new American collection of Primo Levi's previously untranslated fiction to appear since 1990 affirms his position as one of the 20th century's most enduring writers. These 17 stories demonstrate Levi's extraordinary range, taking the reader from the primal resistance of a captured partisan fighter to a middle-aged chemist experimenting with a new paint that wards off evil, to the lustful thoughts of an older man obsessed with a mysterious woman in a seaside villa.
