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 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.

The writing is at times profoundly moving, at times more analytical.

Matty
This engaging and erudite work is as much an exploration of the creative urge as it is a literary biography. Sam Magavern examines Primo Levi's quest to synthesize a system by which to make order of his eventful life and give shape to ethical inquiry. Magavern writes his fresh, thoughtful study of Levi so clearly and cogently that this book offers great appeal to an audience beyond Levi-readers or literature scholars. This is one of the best books I've read this year.
