The Late Mattia Pascal - Luigi Pirandello, William Weaver, Charles Simic 3.5 stars

The style of the story makes me think of a domesticated form of a picaresque novel. What would you choose to do and who would you choose to be if you could walk away from your current life because everyone thought you were dead? Which life would be the "real" you? Would you choose to live life in the same way you currently are living it, or would you change your way of living? These and other questions of reality and identity are explored through the eyes of the "late" Mattia Pascal.
