Waterstones Says

Defining works of twentieth-century autobiography, Levi's two masterpieces interrogate the author's experiences of the Holocaust and his subsequent vexed freedom and return home in unflinching yet unfailingly eloquent prose that moves and inspires.

With the moral stamina and intellectual pose of a twentieth-century Titan, this slightly built, duitful, unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth, steadfastly to think it through, and then to render it comprehensible in lucid, unpretentious prose.

He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contempible.

“If This is a Man/The Truce”

No brief summery could do justice to the power of this book. It is a document of such intensity and horror that although my eyes were full of tears I couln't stop reading. The cruelty which Primo Levi suffered... More

“What a read...”

I chose to read and study the book for my A Level Literature coursework, and wow- what a read! Harrowing and tear inducing at times, but blissfully hopeful at others. A remarkable novel. Unique. You must read it!

WW2 literature is boring right? We’ve had it hammered into us since school and we know the Nazis were the bad guys and did bad things. So why would Levi tell you anything you didn’t know?

The reason being: Levi is... More
