Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the final days of World War II, a courageous band of Jewish partisans makes its way from Russia to Italy, moving toward the ultimate goal of Palestine. Based on a true story, If Not Now, When? chronicles their adventures as they wage a personal war of revenge against the Nazis: blowing up trains, rescuing the last victims of concentration camps, scoring victories in the face of unspeakable devastation. Primo Levi captures the landscape and the people of Eastern Europe in vivid detail, depicting as well the terrible bleakness of war-ridden Europe. But finally, what he gives us is a tribute to the strength and ingenuity of the human spirit.

"One of the most important and gifted writers of our time" —Italo Calvino

Melissa Kinsey, October 12, 2008 (view all comments by Melissa Kinsey)
In serious times like these, with wars dominating the news, it is important to read serious writers like Primo Levi. His wisdom about war, humanity, good and evil, and the strength of the human spirit transcends time to feed a generation hungry for understanding. As with "Slaughterhouse Five" and "War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning," "If Not Now, When" should be required reading for everyone.
