Product Synopsis

The novels that the great Italian writer Alberto Moravia wrote in the years following the World War II represent an extraordinary survey of the range of human behavior in a fragmented modern society. Boredom, the story of a failed artist and pampered son of a rich family who becomes dangerously attached to a young model, examines the complex relations between money, sex, and imperiled masculinity. This powerful and disturbing study in the pathology of modern life is one of the masterworks of a writer whom as Anthony Burgess once remarked, was "always trying to get to the bottom of the human imbroglio."

Think about it. Boredom is not merely the lack of things to do, it's symptomatic of a deeper alienation. Superlatively presented here by Moravia who is perhaps better known for Contempt, which became Godards Le Mepris. His measured tone and attention to detail caused me to miss many bus stops over the last few weeks. This is dark, disillusioned Camusian youth at its zenith. - Seb.
