Doctor Zhivago Publisher Gets Biographical Album

Neon Neon has released Praxis Makes Perfect, an entire album dedicated to the life story of Italian publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli.

The Italian activist published Boris Pasternak‘s Doctor Zhivago and Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa‘s The Leopard, and both novels get their own songs on the album. Below, we’ve embedded a free Spotify playlist so you can listen to the whole album. Here’s more about the album:

Praxis Makes Perfect is inspired by the life and times of Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. Born in to one of Italy’s wealthiest families, Feltrinelli was a left-wing political activist and published some of the greatest literary works of the 20th century, including The Leopard and Doctor Zhivago. He died in highly suspicious circumstances in 1972. Praxis Makes Perfect features Sabrina Salerno, Asia Argento, Cate Le Bon & Josh Klinghoffer.
