The time of indifference by Alberto Moravia( Book )

465 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in 21 languages and held by 2,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in Rome, The Time of Indifference tells a deceptively simple story. Five characters are cast loose on the sea of modern life - obsessed with what they want, what they feel they are owed, the wrongs that have been done them, their loneliness. The intrigues of these family members and lovers serve to expose the hollow core of bourgeois society in the early twentieth century, and what Moravia destroys forever in this pitiless novel is the illusion that a world of ever-growing material comfort can ever feed the human soul."--Jacket

The woman of Rome by Alberto Moravia( Book )

460 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 27 languages and held by 2,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The glitter and cynicism of Rome under Mussolini provide the background of what is probably Alberto Moravia's best and best-known novel - The Woman of Rome. It's the story of Adriana, a simple girl with no fortune but her beauty who models naked for a painter, accepts gifts from men, and could never quite identify the moment when she traded her private dream of home and children for the life of a prostitute. One of the very few novels of the twentieth century which can be ranked with the work of Dostoevsky, The Woman of Rome also tells the stories of the tortured university student Giacomo, a failed revolutionary who refuses to admit his love for Adriana; of the sinister figure of Astarita, the Secret Police officer obsessed with Adriana; and of the coarse and brutal criminal Sonzogno, who treats Adriana as his private property

"Since childhood [Marcello] Clerici has struggled with conflicting urges--a compulsion to hurt others and an obsessive desire to conform. ... When he is assigned to kill a former professor, now in exile, and falls unexpectedly in love with a strange, compelling woman, his life is torn open."--Cover

A ghost at noon by Alberto Moravia( Book )

229 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 20 languages and held by 1,565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Molteni, the narrator, aspires to be a man of letters, but has taken a job as a screenwriter in order to support his beautiful wife, Emilia. Frustrated by his work, he becomes convinced that Emilia no longer loves him--that in fact she despises him-- and as he relentlessly interrogates her about the true nature of her feelings, he makes his deepest fear (or secret desire) come true. Molteni is one of the great appalling characters of twentieth-century fiction--a man of sensitivity and intelligence who is incorrigibly blind to his own nature."--Back cover
1934 by Alberto Moravia( Book )

63 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 13 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans l'Italie du fascisme triomphant et des fanatismes spontanés, un écrivain désespéré de 27 ans se rend à Capri pour écrire son prochain roman. Deux militantes nazies et homosexuelles s'amusent à leurrer l'artiste, à lui montrer que son grand amour pour une suicidaire décadente est la conséquence d'une plaisanterie pour piéger un bellâtre Italien. Une oeuvre qui souffre des "intentions démonstratrices" de Moravia, qui se situe dans la lignée de ##La nausée## de Sartre sans en avoir la richesse et aborde l'angoisse existentielle sur un mode assez pirandellien, sans oublier la touche de sexualité obsédante chère à l'auteur du ##Mépris## (1955)
Time of desecration by Alberto Moravia( Book )

102 editions published between 1978 and 2004 in 10 languages and held by 1,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman-interview. Sans doute Moravia a-t-il profité de cette oeuvre pour se livrer, une nouvelle fois, à l'inventaire de ses obsessions et exigences érotiques. Comme le souligne Ajame, cette littérature frappe presque toujours au-dessous de la ceinture

Two; a phallic novel by Alberto Moravia( Book )

109 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in 12 languages and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel, translated from Italian, centers around the dialogue between the male character and his prepotent penis, raising the question about the role of sexuality in creativity. The main character wishes to be a film director, but feels his sexuality interferes with his art. One reviewer noted there was about this book many pages of rather boring "tintillation but no consumation," while another labelled it "weird, but very interesting..."

Grâce à la description d'un bal qui devient une mascarade, où les intrigues amoureuses se mêlent aux complots politiques et où le cynisme le dispute à la cruauté, Alberto Moravia livre une satire du fascisme mussolinien et propose une réflexion sur les régimes totalitaires et les idéologies
