Product Details

Praise

“It’s always fascinating to see a great writer’s work in progress; this is no exception” —Corinne Segal, Lit Hub

“For Svevo, life itself is a fatal pathology, the human condition a sickness for which there is no cure. There exists a treatment, however: laughter. Though the miseries of old age and fear of death are central to his late stories, a huge amount of laughter occurs in A Very Old Man.” —Sigrid Nunez, Harper’s Magazine
