Boredom

(1999)
A novel by

 
The novels that the great Italian writer Alberto Moravia produced in the years following the World War II represent an extraordinary survey of the range of human behavior in a fragmented modern society. Boredom, the story of a failed artist and pampered son of a rich family who becomes dangerously attached to a young model, examines the complex relations between money, sex, and imperiled masculinity. This powerful and disturbing study in the pathology of mode rn life is one of the masterworks of a writer who, as Anthony Burgess once remarked, was always trying to get to the bottom of the human imbroglio.
