Having already written two memoirs on his experiences at Auschwitz, Primo Levi knew there was still more to tell. Collected in this book are portraits of fifteen people from the Holocaust. Some Levi knew personally, like the young Romani man who smuggled a creased photo of his bride past the camp guards or the starving prisoner who still insisted on fasting on Yom Kippur. While others Levi learned about only secondhand, like Chaim Rumkowski, the "King of Jews," who ruled over the Lodz ghetto like a personal fiefdom.

To Levi, these individuals were neither simple heroes nor victims, but individuals who retained a spark of human vitality in the face of unspeakable hardship. They represented "bizarre, marginal moments of reprieve" that sustained Levi in his darkest hour. Moments of Reprieve shines with lyricism and insight.

Bargain books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that are discreetly marked with a small dot or line on the edge of the pages and, while most are in great condition, some books may exhibit minor cosmetic wear and tear. They may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In rare cases the actual cover of the book might not match the one in the display picture.
