FROM THE PUBLISHER - In the last years of his life Svevo was working on a sequel to THE CONFESSIONS OF ZENO, It was never completed, but from the fragments he left it is possible to conjecture what kind of work it might have been, The five narratives included in this volume deal-like the astonishingly funny and accomplished three-act play with which it ends - with Svevoís obsession with old age, its miseries and consolations, In the humor, tenderness and gently irony of these final works, and in the beauty and complexity of their prose, the voice of THE CONFESSIONS OF ZENO and AS A MAN GROWS OLDER will be found to be as steady as ever, the laughter as sharp, the insight undimmed.
