Product Details


“[Alain] erects the scaffolding of a thorough examination of collector’s envy.” – Nora Mahony, Times Literary Supplement

“Envy is a novel – or novella (125 airy pages, admirably translated from the Italian by Alastair McEwen and handsomely produced by the Pushkin Press) – about the possibility of a novel that remains unwritten, which is about as postmodern as it gets. It’s all a tease – of the painter and his lawyers, of the reader, and of the author himself… elegant, witty and provocative.” – Lewis Jones, New Statesman
