Ph | 16 comments So I'm bored at work and in the process of trying to add all 1001 books to my goodreads shelves. I came across a problem: Disobedience by Alberto Moravia. I can't find any where, even on Amazon. Is it possible that Alberto Moravia is not actually the author of this book or it has not been translated?

I'm basing this on another list since I can't really carrying my 1001 Books book around with me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kim (kimbobo) I found that it was available at my some of my local libraries (mostly universities) through http://www.worldcat.org

So I'm assuming it exists somewhere...

Kim (kimbobo) Also...I wonder once you do all that work...is there a way for me to shamelessly copy that list into my own? =)

Liz M There is a difference in the title, depending on the country. "Disobedience" can be found on Amazon.com/UK &
http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/m/a...

Two Adolescents: Agostino And Disobedience
(1952)
A collection of stories by
Alberto Moravia

_Two Adolescents_ is easy enough to find both on goodreads & Amazon's US website. For some reason, in the US the short story collection is titled _Two adolescents: the stories of Agostino and Luca_ (a translation of Agostino and La Disubbidienza).

Ph | 16 comments Thank you all for your help. I'm not sure if there is an easy way to transfer all the books to your own account. You could always flip through my shelves and it, but that's not much better than just doing it yourself...I have no problem with people taking it, though.

I was also having trouble finding Trawl by B.S. Johnson. Any suggestions?

Liz M Googling "Trawl by B.S. Johnson" leads to Amazon.com/UK's page for

Omnibus: Albert Angelo, House Mother Normal & Trawl (3 titles) (Hardcover)
by B.S. Johnson (Author)

And goodreads has Omnibus:
