Moravia remains one of the twentieth century’s smoothest and most entertaining poets of paralysis, of the genial ennui generated by the triumph of materialism over humane values…his novels offer a bracing counterpoint to today’s soft-hearted and -headed fiction.

I saw the film first. Rarely do films inspire me to purchase books. These two do not fight each other, but rather each experience is enhanced by the other. About the intricacies and inevitable duplicity of human relations, Contempt is a serious and unforgettable experience. This new version is as sophisticated as the author and his likely readers. Moravia must be pleased to be housed in the elegance of this book. Art for the eye and the mind's eye. Sensuous to touch & read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
