Primo Levi's Universe: A Writer's Journey : Primo Levi is best known for his memoir, Survival in Auschwitz, but he was also a scientist, fiction writer, and poet: in short, a Renaissance man, who did not want to be known exclusively as a Holocaust writer. Using Levi's own words as a springboard, Sam Magavern offers here for the first time a multi-faceted portrait of the man - as a writer. By exploring all of Levi's writings - including his short stories, poems, his delightful novels about blue-collar workers - Magavern introduces us to a talented writer who had a profound love of humanity, a sharp wit, a passion for his profession as a chemist - a man inspired by a variety of things beyond his Holocaust experience. Magavern brings a fresh, personal sensibility to the way we think about Levi and produces a hybrid book - part life story and part literary biography, finally doing justice to the man's calm rationality and essential beliefs.
