‘In the beginning was boredom’

220px-Alberto_MoraviaThat’s the title of a lengthy commentary on Alberto Moravia and his work by Ian Thomson in the TLS this week (25 Sept). It follows a review of Agostino, a short novel written in 1942, initially censured by the Fascist regime, published in a limited edition in 1943, republished in full by Bompiani in 1945 and described by the reviewer, Michael McDonald, as perhaps Moravia’s magnum opus. Bertolucci’s film of Moravia’s Il conformista is currently being shown in the Lavazza film festival.
