All of the work by one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, a clear-eyed witness to fascism.

The Complete Works of Primo Levi: Primo Levi was one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, his seeming dispassion a means to eloquently express things that are near to being beyond the imagination. We are at a pathetic and infuriating time in American history where American fascists have been encouraged to crawl out from under their rocks, and Levi is the preeminent and most powerful witness to the world they tried to make.

This three-volume set collects his novels, essays, memoirs, criticism, everything and is available at a deep discount, around $25 (price varies at times), both cheaper than the digital version and a great value for some of the greatest writing you’ll find. Give this pride of place in your library.
