Head of Zeus
The Time Of Indifference
The Time Of Indifference Alberto Moravia, edited by Michael Schmidt

In 1929, the fifth year of the Fascist era and the twenty-first year of Alberto Moravia's life, the Italian literary world was stunned by the appearance of his first novel, THE TIME OF INDIFFERENCE. It was a deceptively simple story – five characters, the events of a few days, the intrigues of families and lovers. Moravia examines them pitilessly – obsessed with what they want, what they feel they are owed, the wrongs that have been done to them, their loneliness. And then he destroys forever the illusion that material comfort can ever feed the soul.
