With the publication of The Periodic Table in 1984, Primo Levi became one of America's most beloved writers. This new collection of his stories and essays reveals the full imaginative range of this great Italian writer. Most of the stories are science fiction and fantasy, combining Levi's love for science with his keen perceptions of human nature. The essays, originally written for the Italian newspaper La Stampa, cover a broad range of his interests, from art and literature to politics and current affairs. Levi's quick wit and humanity shine through in these gemlike pieces. Book jacket.
