Confessions of Zeno (riverrun Editions)
Author(s): Italo Svevo; Beryl De Zoete (Translator)
'I am sure a cigarette has a more poignant flavour when it is the last'
A neurotic Italian businessman obsessed by his own hypochondria, Zeno Cosini recounts his early years to his psychoanalyst Dr S as a form of therapy. With a cigarette clutched permanently between his fingers, he explores the important themes of his life: his love of smoking, his relationship with his parents, his marriage. Structured as a series of conversations with his psychoanalyst, Zeno was an innovation in its time, and remains a curious and intriguing delight.
Michael Hoffman places Confessions of Zeno in its European context in his sparkling introduction.
