An extraordinary work in which each of the 21 chapters takes its title and starting point from one of the elements in the periodic table. Mingling fact and fiction, history and anecdote, Levi uses his training as a chemist and his experiences as a prisoner in Auschwitz to illuminate the human condition.

This is the great Italian author's third memoir, and the first of his books to appear in America. Translated from the Italian by Raymond Rosenthal.

“The best introduction to the psychological world of one of the most important and gifted writers of our time.”—Italo Calvino

“After a few pages I immersed myself in The Periodic Table gladly and gratefully. There is nothing superfluous here, everything this book contains is essential. It is wonderfully pure, and beautifully translated.”—Saul Bellow
