£29.99

Product description

Please note: The text of this book is in Italian.

Elio Vittorini (1908 – 1966) was an Italian writer and novelist. He was a contemporary of Cesare Pavese and an influential voice in the modernist school of novel writing. His best-known work is the anti-fascist novel Conversations in Sicily, for which he was jailed when it was published in 1941.

Conversazione in Sicilia is a novel which originally appeared in serial form in the literary magazine Letteratura in 1938–1939, and was first published in book form under the title Nome e Lagrime in 1941. The story concerns Silvestro Ferrauto and his return to Sicily after a long absence. Major themes of the work are detachment, poverty, exploitation and marital fidelity and respect.

The book is illustrated with colour and black-and-white photographs by Enzo Ragazzini.

This is a large-print edition.

There is very slight shelf wear to the covers of the book. Inside, the book is in excellent condition throughout.
