About this product
- DescriptionPavese published AMONG WOMEN ONLY just months before his suicide in 1950. It has since become one of his most sought-after vels: this Modern Classic release is Peter Owen's fifth edition of the book. A successful couturier returns to Turin, the city in which she grew up, at the end of the Second World War. Opening a salon of her own leads her into a nihilistic circle of young hedonists, including the charismatic Rosetta, whose tragic death forms the vel's climax. But Turin itself is at the heart of the vel, its pervading melancholy deftly rendered by a master craftsman. - AMONG WOMEN ONLY was awarded the prestigious Strega Prize and has also been filmed. - Pavese's vel The Moon and the Bonfire (also published by Peter Owen) is an Open University set text. - Before his imprisonment by the Fascist government in 1935, Pavese was a rewned translator, producing Italian versions of Defoe, Dickens, Joyce and Melville.
