9780141183909: If Not Now, When? (Penguin Modern Classics)

Primo Levi was among the greatest witnesses to twentieth-century atrocity. In this gripping novel, based on a true story, he reveals the extraordinary lives of the Russian, Polish and Jewish partisans trapped behind enemy lines during the Second World War. Wracked by fear, hunger and fierce rivalries, they link up, fall apart, struggle to stay alive and to sabotage the efforts of the all-powerful German army. A compelling tale of action, resistance and epic adventure, it also reveals Levi's characteristic compassion and deep insight into the moral dilemmas of total war. It ranks alongside THE PERIOD TABLE and IF THIS IS A MAN as one of the rare authentic masterpieces of our times.

Product Description:

If Not Now, When? (Penguin Modern Classics)

Review:

This book achieves many things - too many, really, to itemise ... yet one is left with an enormous sense of optimism and gratitude to the author ( LISTENER)

Levi is a master whose hand never slips... I was convinced by every detail, and absurdly shaken to realise at the end that it was indeed fiction, however well grounded in fact. I knew these people, and I wanted to know more ( THE TIMES)

Levi writes of unimaginable hardships ... and of exhilaration... ( FINANCIAL TIMES)

A novel full of horrors, but wonderfully uplifting and optimistic in its tribute to the human spirit. ( SUNDAY TIMES)
