Iron Potassium Nickel : Pocket Penguins
In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of 'good books for all'. A highly educated Jewish Italian, Primo Levi achieved world-wide fame with his first book, If This is a Man: an objective account of his struggle for survival following imprisonment in Auschwitz in 1943. Taken from his great work The Periodic Table, these stories describe his training as a chemist in wartime Turin against a backdrop of growing anti-Semitism.
