Among the masters of twentieth-century literature, Giorgio Bassani and his northern Italian hometown of Ferrara are as inseparable as James Joyce and Dublin or Italo Svevo and Trieste (from the Introduction). The Novel of Ferrara brings together Bassani's six classics, fully revised by the author at the end of his life.
Set before, during, and after the Second World War, these interlocking stories present nuanced and unforgettable characters: the respected doctor whose homosexuality is exposed by an exploitative youth; the survivor of the Nazi death camps; the Jewish landowner, returned from exile, to find himself utterly displaced; the schoolteacher whose Communist idealism challenges a postwar generation.
Suffused with new life by acclaimed translator and poet Jamie McKendrick, The Novel of Ferrara memorializes a city deeply informed by the Jewish community to which the narrator belongs. This seminal work seals Bassani's indomitable reputation.
