Description:

New York. 1971. Dial Press. 1st Printing. Previous Owner's Name Penned In Front, Otherwise Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket W/Some Tears. Translated from the Italian by Raymond Rosenthal. 276 pages. July 1971. hardcover. Jacket design by Jacqueline Schumann. keywords: Literature Translated Italy. inventory # 26892. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Tommaso Landolfi is one of Italy’s greatest writers, and this volume represents his finest work of the past ten years. Landolfi’s universe is peopled by madmen, fantasists, talking animals, robots, anguished lovers - it is funny, sometimes horrifying, and always bewitching. The title story, for instance, in the best science-fiction tradition, concerns the spaceship Cancerqueen, which whisks off to the moon a mad scientist and an equally deranged writer. But Cancerqueen herself is no model of mental health either, and in a hair-raising and riotous climax the three characters find their deserved ends. At once, ‘Cancerqueen’ parodies and extends the methods of Poe and H. G. Wells. Landolfi’s writings recall Gogol for their sharp humor, Kafka for their sense of the fantastic, Borges for stylistic wit. But Landolfi’s individuality and range have forced his critics to abandon all notions of critical categories and to designate him, simply, an original. Tommaso Landolfi was born in 1908 in the province of Frosinone, which lies between Rome and Naples. He attended the University of Florence and took a degree in Russian literature. As a young man he lived for a time in Rome and in Trieste, but afterwards spent most of the year at his home in Pico. A collection of Landolfi stories, GOGOL’S WIFE AND OTHER STORIES, was published in the United States in 1963.
