History : a novel by Elsa Morante ( Book )
24 editions published between 1974 and 2007 in English and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"History was written nearly three decades after Elsa Morante spent a year hiding from the Germans in remote farming villages in the mountains south of Rome. There she witnessed the full impact of the war and first formed the ambition to write an account of what History--the great political events driven by men of power, wealth, and ambition--does when it reaches the realm of ordinary people struggling for life and bread. The central character in this powerful and unforgiving novel is Ida Mancuso, a schoolteacher whose husband has died and whose feckless teenage son treats the war as his playground. A German soldier on his way to North Africa rapes her and leaves her pregnant with a boy whose survival becomes Ida's passion, and her source of joy and meaning amid universal catastrophe."--BOOK JACKET

Then the father returns from the mainland with a new wife, Nunziata, who is in fact a girl barely older than Arturo himself."--Back cover
