La memoria della foresta – Powers’ novel in Italian

Of all the covers, this one appearing on the Italian edition (Feltrinelli, 1998) strikes me as the most arresting. Although some might see in it an element of schlock-horror, for me this shot cuts to the core topic of the novel in a way that the other editions do not address.

The translation was done by Vincenzo Mantovani, who has translated other works of American literature into Italian, including such writers as Henry James, Richard Ford, Ernest Hemingway, Philip Roth and Saul Bellow.

The book can be accessed via Google Books here.
