    Thirteen-year-old Agostino is spending the summer at a Tuscan seaside resort with his beautiful widowed mother. When she takes up with a cocksure new companion, Agostino, feeling ignored and unloved, begins hanging around with a group of local young toughs. Though repelled by their squalor and brutality, and repeatedly humiliated for his weakness and ignorance when it comes to women and sex, the boy is increasingly, masochistically drawn to the gang and its rough games. He finds himself unable to make sense of his troubled feelings. Hoping to be full of manly calm, he is instead beset by guilty curiosity and an urgent desire to sever, at any cost, the thread of troubled sensuality that binds him to his mother. Alberto Moravia’s classic, startling portrait of innocence lost was written in 1942 but rejected by Fascist censors and not published until 1944, when it became a best seller and secured the author the first literary prize of his career. Revived here in a new translation by Michael F. Moore, Agostino is poised to captivate a twenty-first-century audience.

    Adriana, a simple girl with no fortune but her beauty, models naked for a painter, accepts gifts from men, and could never quite identify the moment she traded her private dream of home and children for the life a prostitute. The Woman of Rome is also the story of tortured university student Giacomo, a failed revolutionary who refuses to admit his desire for Adriana; of the sinister figure Astarita, a big shot with the political police who is obsessed with Adriana; and of the coarse and brutal criminal Sonzogno, who treats Adriana as his private property. Within this drama of passion, mystery and betrayal, Moravia calmly strips away the pride and arrogance hiding the corrupt heart of Italian Fascism.
