    In If This Is a Man Primo Levi describes his deportation to Poland and his 20 months in Auschwitz. In The Truce he describes his long journey to Italy at the end of the war through Russia and Central Europe. 'What has survived in Levi's writing isn't just his memory of the unbearable, but also... his delight in what made the world exquisite to him. He was himself a magically endearing man, the most delicately forceful enchanter I've ever known.' (Philip Roth)
