Zeno’s Conscience

Zeno’s Conscience

Author(s): Italo Svevo

Location(s): Trieste

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Late 1800s-Early 1900s

This enormously engaging, strange novel is both an engrossing saga of a family and a hilarious account of addiction and failure as its helpless hero, notionally undergoing psychiatric help, manages spectacularly to fail to give up smoking, run his business or make sense of his private life.

A hymn to self-delusion and procrastination ZENO’S CONSCIENCE has provoked enormous affection in its readers both in Italian and English since its first publication in the 1920s.
