זמן שאול Summary æ 100 Wards off evil to the lustful thoughts of an older man obsessed with a mysterious woman in a seaside villa In the title story Levi demonstrates his unerringly tragic understanding of the fragility of the universe through the tale of a pensive astr. There are times when I pick a book at random off a library shelf and don t regret it at all This slim volume caught my eye for no particular reason but turned out to be one of the best collections of short stories I ve read for a long time probably since JG Ballard s Vermilion Sands in 2001 if we re going to be pedantic I had heard of Primo Levi and knew he d written a book called The Periodic Table that was named the best science book ever by the Royal Institution of Great Britain I also had an idea he was an Auschwitz survivor but that was the total of my knowledgeNow I know better I m acutely aware that he was not only a scientist and an opponent of Fascism but also an excellent fiction writer The stories in A Tranuil Star are worthy of Italo Calvino and in many ways they resemble Calvino s own visions Conceptual agility is the key phrase in any summary of the tales contained in this book a truly profound scientific and philosophical intelligence underpins each text and yet the formal mental rigour never weakens or obscures the artistic heart Choosing a favourite piece from the seventeen on display here is a task fraught with difficulty but One Night stands out as almost unbearably odd and eerie a train is forced to a stop by a mass of fallen leaves in a desolate landscape and falls victim to a tribe of dwarves who methodically dismantle it and the track it stands on carrying each rivet and metal plate back into the forest

זמן שאול Summary æ 100 These seventeen stories first published in Italian between 1949 and 1986 demonstrate Levi's extraordinary range taking the reader from the primal resistance of a captured partisan fighter to a middle aged chemist experimenting with a new paint that. Because these stories are generally uite short I found it hard to write individual reviews for them While there were some stories I really enjoyed there were many that were boring or relied too heavily on the reader s outside knowledge By far the best story of the collection was the titular A Tranuil Star I know in the future I will read of Levi s work just because of his importance in Jewish literary canon but in the end I found this first introduction to be particularly underwhelmingOn the translator s introduction I ll never understand why introductions to short story collections so often feel the need to spoil half the stories in the intro They re short stories I ll get to them soon enoughI am a big fan of the all female translation team thoughDeath of Marinese 35Bear Meat 25Censorship in Britinia 45Knall 25In the Park 25The Magic Paint 45Gladiators 45The Fugitive 35One Night 35Fra Diavolo on the Po I refuse to rate this because it s a nonfiction account of Holocaust related ordealsThe Sorcerers 15Bureau of Vital Statistics 35The Girl in the Book 45Buffet Dinner 25The TV Fans from Delta Cep 45The Molecule s Defiance 35A Tranuil Star 55

זמן שאול Summary æ 100 Onomer terrified by the possibility that a long dormant star might explode and reduce the entire planet to vapor This remarkable new collection affirms Italo Calvino's conviction that Levi was one of the most important and gifted writers of our tim. It pains me to give a book one star It truly doesThe first short story could have been great but instead I found it lacking The second story I actually enjoyed Mountain climbing I could have kept reading had it been longerIt went downhill uickly I hated most stories after that The fifth storyno Just no Not sure what I read The ending was so unattached I kept reading the book and kept getting madder and madder Why did I keep reading it I slapped my forehead numerous times One short story I swear the writer got up from his typewriter for a coffee and the Dennis the Menace type of neighbor broke into his house and finished the story for himI need to make it known I love short stories normally It s not that I am opposed to them Just to these particular short storiesSigh
