The city and the house by Natalia Ginzburg ( Book )
13 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and Hebrew and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The city is Rome. The house is in the little town of Monte Fermo. The protagonist of the novel is Lucrezia, mother of five and lover of many. Translated from the Italian by Dick Davis. This powerful novel is set against the background of Italy from 1939 to 1944, from the anxious months before the country entered the war, through the war years, to the Allied victory with its trailing wake of anxiety, disappointment, and grief. In the foreground are the members of two families. One is rich, the other is not. In All Our Yesterdays, as in all of Ms. Ginzburg's novels, terrible things happen-su
The Manzoni family by Natalia Ginzburg ( Book )
10 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A glowing light of modern Italian literature. . . . As direct and clean as if it were carved in stone, it yet speaks thoughts of the heart."--The New York Times Book Review. Set in ducal Italy and post-revolutionary France, The Manzoni Family tells a rich story of passions, writing, rivalries, deaths, and war. It pivots on the figure of Alessandro Manzoni, celebrated Milanese nobleman, man of letters, and author of the masterpiece of nineteenth-century Italian literature, I promessi sposi (The Betrothed). But the tale begins with the matriarchal figure of Giulia, the mother whom the young poet found in Paris after she had abandoned him as an infant. There is Enrichetta, the woman he and his mother chose to be his wife, and the many children she had by him until her death; literary friends from the beau monde in Italy and Paris; and Alessandro's second wife, Teresa, and her children. Against the background of Napoleonic occupation, the reestablishment of Austrian hegemony, and the stirrings of the revolutionary urge for unification and independence, Ginzburg gracefully weaves the story of a dynasty, the Manzoni family, that seems to grow autonomously around the life of the writer and to incorporate all the epic tumult and emotion of the age

La famiglia Manzoni by Natalia Ginzburg ( Book )
38 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
<<Ho tentato di rimettere insieme la storia della famiglia Manzoni; volevo ricostruirla, ricomporla, allinearla ordinatamente nel tempo. Avevo delle lettere e dei libri. Non volevo esprimere commenti, ma limitarmi a una nuda e semplice successione di fatti. Volevo che i fatti parlassero da sé. Volevo che le lettere, accorate o fredde, cerimoniose o schiette, palesemente menzognere o indubitabilmente sincere, parlassero da sé... Il protagonista di questa lunga storia famigliare non volevo fosse Alessandro Manzoni. Una storia famigliare non ha un protagonista; ognuno dei suoi membri è di volta in volta illuminato e risospinto nell'ombra. Non volevo che egli avesse piú spazio degli altri; volevo che fosse visto di profilo e di scorcio, e mescolato in mezzo agli altri, confuso nel polverio della vita giornaliera. E tuttavia egli domina la scena; è il capo-famiglia; e gli altri certo non hanno la sua grandezza. E d'altronde egli appare piú degli altri strano, tortuoso, complesso...>> (N. Ginzburg)

Famiglia by Natalia Ginzburg ( Book )
24 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Famiglia e Borghesia sono i due capitoli che compongono questo libro della Ginzburg scritto nel 1977 e da allora mai più riproposto. Due storie di smarrimento e di crisi familiare in cui i personaggi che annodano e dipanano i loro destini sembrano trascinati da una casualità capricciosa che inventa incontri sorprendenti, amicizie scontrose, fragili amori, tenaci avversioni. Come avviene nelle sue pagine migliori, Natalia Ginzburg segue gli arabeschi di queste esistente incrinate con uno stile distillato, in un sommesso ma implacabile controcanto che reinvesta la musica banale e terribile della vita."--P. [4] of cover
