Primo Levi's Auschwitz memoir and meditation, If This is a Man, is a key to understanding the twentieth century. Now, Carole Angier has written the remarkable and revelatory story of this man's life. Levi's books made their modest author into an icon of human dignity and justice for the whole of the Western world. But what kind of man was this intensely private Italian-Jewish chemist from Turin? Did Auschwitz make him a writer at twenty-seven and kill him at sixty-seven, or is the truth more complicated than that? Carole Angier's compelling and wide-ranging biography tackles these tough questions to create a profound and moving portrait of an extraordinary man.
