July Books 13) The Periodic Table

13) The Periodic Table, by Primo Levi

A very neat and thought-provoking series of autobiographical sketches (plus a couple of short fiction pieces), each based around one particular chemical element. Levi uses the metaphor to explore several aspects of his own life: growing up Jewish in Fascist Italy, being an industrial chemist, surviving Auschwitz. Fascinating and absorbing.

You should read the other one, The Monkey Wrench I think it's called. Even better IMHO.
