Product Details

Praise

“Giorgio Bassani is one of the great witnesses of this century, and one of its great artists.” –The Guardian

“Curiously haunting and poetic . . . Like Proust, a novelist to whom he is inevitably compared, Bassani is a specialist in decadence and nostalgia.” –Christian Science Monitor

“Bassani looms large in the Italian literary scene . . . [The Garden of the Finzi-Continis] is an honest book, and tells with a kind of probing tenderness a true story of sensitive and vulnerable youth in a somber decade.” –Saturday Review

The Garden of the Finzi-Continis is first and foremost a love story and on quite a different level from anything else Bassani wrote . . . Beneath every other theme and concern, and whether or not prompted by the political situation, the question [the novel] quite explicitly ask[s] is:
what does it mean to have lived?” –from the new Introduction by Tim Parks
