A seemingly simple and charming book...
on 25 July 2015
Primo Levy has been one of my great discoveries in the last 12 months, I started with the Periodic Table after seeing it referenced somewhere and have never looked back. Aside from being a great writer he was also a fascinating character: student, chemist, partisan, holocaust survivor, writer and a keen observer of humanity.
You can take The Wrench on many different levels, but at it's most basic level it is a charming well written, amusing narrative where the tales of the rigger are retold by the chemist. I'll leave the other levels for the prospective reader to discover.
