Description:

London. 1992. Harvill/Harper Collins. 1st British Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Remainder Marking On Bottom Edge. Translated from the Italian by Patrick Creagh. 207 pages. hardcover. Jacket illustration. Portrait of a man, unfinished (Tadeusz de Lempicki), 1928 by Tamara de Lempicka. ISBN: 0002711583. inventory # 23308. FROM THE PUBLISHER - In Natàca, a Sicilian coastal town, the citizens lead their lives from season to season on an open-air stage. Nothing happens in Natàca that escapes a thousand watchful eyes; nothing happens that eludes a thousand sardonic tongues; but then under that opaque, even blue sky nothing happens in Natàca - tedium reigns supreme. When Buscaino arrives, ostensibly on his return from America, and sets about raising funds to build a panoramic tower (for the pleasure of the citizens and his own profit), the apathetic townsfolk are for a moment galvanized, and the ever-optimistic Buscaino believes that American-Style dynamism will finally rout Southern sloth. But Natàca, any coincidental similarities notwithstanding, is not New York. THE LOST YEARS, with its gallery of dazzlingly wrought caricatures of Sicilian provincials, from the crumbling duke in his draughty high-ceilinged palazzo to the all-devouring bourgeois mother amid her ormolu clocks and coffee-cups, was Vitaliano Brancatiís first novel, issued in 1938 during the heyday of Fascism. Its covert political satire of a Nation in pursuit of a cause was lost on the gerarchi and it escaped the hands of the censors. It is now published for the first time in English. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Remainder Marking On Bottom Edge. Bookseller Inventory # 23308
