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)
Agostino by Alberto Moravia ( Book )
268 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 1,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A thirteen-year-old boy spending the summer at a Tuscan seaside resort feels displaced in his beautiful widowed mother's affections by her cocksure new companion and strays into the company of some local young toughs and their unsettling leader, a fleshy older boatman with six fingers on each hand. Initially repelled by their squalor and brutality, repeatedly humiliated for his well-bred frailty and above all for his ingenuousness in matters of women and sex, the boy nonetheless finds himself masochistically drawn back to the gang's rough games. And yet what he has learned is too much for him to assimilate; instead of the manly calm he had hoped for he is beset by guilty curiosity and an urgent desire to sever, at any cost, the thread of troubled sensuality that binds him to his mother still. Alberto Moravia's classic and yet still startling portrait of innocence lost was written in 1941 but rejected by Fascist censors and not published until 1944, when it became a best seller and secured the author the first literary prize of his career. Revived here in a sparkling new translation by Michael F. Moore, Agostino is poised to enthrall and astonish a twenty-first-century audience"--

The woman of Rome by Alberto Moravia ( Book )
72 editions published between 1949 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,017 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

The time of indifference by Alberto Moravia ( Book )
25 editions published between 1953 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 825 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."--BOOK JACKET
