The Periodic Table by Primo Levi is an impassioned response to the Holocaust: Consisting of 21 short stories, each possessing the name of a chemical element, the collection tells of the author's experiences as a Jewish-Italian chemist before, during, and after Auschwitz in luminous, clear, and unfailingly beautiful prose.

Astoundingly beautiful

So stunning. Officially my favorite author EVER. I was left in tears at the end of this one after I had also listened to his other audiobooks, knowing that I had come to an end of hearing his words in my head and thinking about them all day. So glad I found him.
