Product Details


Rich in substance and resonant with meaning…a rare achievement.
The New York Times

Moravia remains one of the twentieth century’s smoothest and most entertaining poets of paralysis, of the genial ennui generated by the triumph of materialism over humane values…his novels offer a bracing counterpoint to today’s soft-hearted and -headed fiction.
Boston Review
