While Pontiggia's third novel, The Invisible Player was his first work to be translated into English. "The story begins with the central figure, a nameless college professor, being criticized in a professional journal for his assertion that he can confirm the origins of the word "hypocrite." The professor sets out to find this anonymous writer, who shows a real hatred for him. In the process, he begins to look at his wife, his lover, and his colleagues in a new and often unflattering light. When he eventually uncovers the identity of the critic, it has little importance compared to his growing personal problems, which are fueled by his being deceived and deceiving." ; The Eridanos Library; Vol. 10; 259 pages.
