This is a story of Francesco Merighi, a journalist, who, to escape a disintegrating marriage, has become a foreign correspondent, spending most of his time out of Italy and traveling abroad. During these ten years, he has continued to share the same apartment with his wife Cora and his step-daughter Baba but has hardly seen or spoken to either of them. When the novel opens, Francesco has made one of his infrequent returns to Rome and has just discovered, through an anonymous letter, that his wife, who has a dressmaking shop, allegedly has a second profession, that of a procuress. He also learns that she had once tried to introduce her then fourteen-year-old daughter into her business. Baba is now twenty, and Francesco finds that his own feelings for his stepdaughter are, or could become, incestuous. For a long time Francesco has been obsessed by a desire to write a novel, and he decides to note in a diary the events of his life with Cora and his inclinations toward Baba; the diary will eventually serve as the raw material of the novel. It does not take long for Francesco to understand that a writer inevitable changes facts and corrects the truth and that even a simple record of life - such as the journal he is keeping - is impossible: an artist always project himself into his narrative and substitutes fictional truth for object reporting
A ghost at noon by Alberto Moravia( Book )

11 editions published between 1939 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contempt is a brilliant and unsettling work by one of the revolutionary masters of modern European literature. All the qualities for which Alberto Moravia is justly famous'his cool clarity of expression, his exacting attention to psychological complexity and social pretension, his still-striking openness about sex'are evident in this story of a failing marriage. Contempt (which was to inspire Jean-Luc Godard's no-less-celebrated film) is an unflinching examination of desperation and self-deception in the emotional vacuum of modern consumer society
Time of desecration by Alberto Moravia( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 562 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
