Editorial Reviews


'The Reinvention of Ignazio Silone is quite simply a brilliant work of literary scholarship. The writing is extremely clear, the tone thoughtful, wise, and witty, and the scholarship impeccable - the author combines archival research with literary analysis and detective work in a superb manner. I believe that Leake's study will stand as the most complete and sophisticated work on Silone's literary works, and the only one that fully takes on the ramifications of Silone's double existence for his literary career. Any future critics of Silone will have to reckon with the findings of this book.'

(Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Department of Italian Studies, New York University)|

'Leake's book is a subtle, thorough and accessible exploration of a delicate and much-contested subject. It is the first scholarly book to raise - with a rare mixture of realism, compassion, and sophistication - the many historical, literary, and theoretical issues obscured by the scandalous appeal of the .caso Silone..'

(Laura Wittman, Department of French and Italian, University of California, Santa Barbara)
