Giorgio Bassani’s New York Lectures and Interviews is pubblished on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the author’s birth by CPL Editions in collaboration with Italian Cultural Institute and the support of Fondazione Giorgio Bassani.
The lectures and interviews contained in the volume were originally given at the Italian Cultural Institute on Park Avenue.
In these pages, translated into English by Steven Baker, Bassani delves into questions of life, poetry, history, truth and religion. He discusses being Italian, art and his love for Truman Capote. One of the essays “On Nazism and Fascism” is an important document originally written in 1944, which Bassani describes as the ideological background of some of his novels and stories: The Garden of the Finzi-Continis or A Night in ’43 or A Plaque on Via Mazzini or Clelia Trotti.
