The double bond : Primo Levi, a biography by Carole Angier( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Primo Levi is one of the clearest and most hopeful writers we have. Starting with his great Auschwitz meditation, If This is a Man, he moved always from darkness to light, from suffering to understanding." "But beneath his rational surface was a different world, which he hid from himself and from others all his life, and allowed to emerge only occasionally in poems and stories." "These two levels of Levi are mirrored in the two levels of this extraordinary biography. On the first, we meet the people and places that shaped him: his troubled family; Turin, the severe and melancholy city he loved; his small, profoundly integrated Jewish community."--Jacket

Echoes of a lost voice : encounters with Primo Levi by Gabriella Poli( Book )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Primo Levi--chemist, Italian, Jew, survivor of Auschwitz-was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. His masterpiece, If This Is a Man, is still one of the most widely read books on the Holocaust today. Echoes of a Lost Voice is the fruit of twelve years of close friendship between the journalist Gabriella Poli and Primo Levi. Gabriella composed the book from all the interviews and conversations recorded with him throughout his career, as well as her own private conversations with him held over several years prior to his death in 1987. She published Echi di una voce perduta only five years later, making it one of the earliest accounts of the writer and his work. In the 30 years since then there have been several biographies and thousands of books and articles about Levi. This one is unique, partly in its privileged access to him, and partly because of its unusual form: by using Levi's own words about himself almost exclusively, this book becomes a kind of ghosted autobiography. Echoes of a Lost Voice has been translated into English for the first time to mark the 30th anniversary of Levi's death. Translated by Nat Paterson. --
