No way by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

145 editions published between 1973 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No Way is a very short novel, bare and bleak as bones. Its ominous English title is appropriate enough for its mood, except for the easy current slanginess of that phrase, mouthed by so many of us now on trivial occasions
The Manzoni family by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

87 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 1,212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... 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"--Back cover
All our yesterdays by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

117 editions published between 1952 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Provided by publisher

The things we used to say by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

278 editions published between 1963 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre, qui consigne son enfance et son adolescence, est aussi une réflexion sur le langage. On y croise les silhouettes de Carlo Levi, Pavese ; on y découvre Turin. Heures noires de la guerre. Soleils de l'antifascisme. Mais il y a aussi cette crise du langage, qui est une crise de générations : les mots vides des parents qui ne saisissent plus l'univers complexe et mortel auquel se cognent les enfants
The dry heart by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

93 editions published between 1947 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Finally back in print, a frighteningly lucid feminist horror story about marriage The Dry Heart begins and ends with the matter-of-fact pronouncement, 'I shot him between the eyes.' Everything in between is a plunge into the chilly waters of loneliness, desperation, and bitterness, and as the tale proceeds, the narrator's murder of her flighty husband takes on a certain logical inevitability. In this powerful novella, Natalia Ginzburg's writing is white-hot, fueled by rage, stripped of any preciousness or sentimentality; she transforms an ordinary dull marriage into a rich psychological thriller that might pose the question: Why don't more wives kill their husbands?"--

Valentino ; and, Sagittarius : two novellas by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these spare, haunting novellas, Natalia Ginzburg displays again the narrative skill, resonantly understated style, themes, and wisdom that have mad her "Italy's foremost woman writer of Italy's finest writers of any kind" (Newsday) Both stories recount the breakup of families and the souring of the dreams that gave them coherence. Each is told in the quiet voice of a young woman, the daughter and sister whom family life has somehow left wounded and unchosen. Each is also the story of that voice's perseverance"--

Cinque romanzi brevi by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

57 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories are set in post-war Italy where younger women,seeking more freedom and autonomy,confront the enduring conservative attitudes of their mothers and fathers, who are too much obsessed with appearances. She concerns herself with the emotional pain and distress of women resulting from men's self-indulgence,shallowness and infidelity. Neither does she avoid the suffering, danger and tragedy as a consequence of childbirth... At a more universal level she portrays how people mostly accept second-best in their relationships and marriages. Characters (especially mothers) resort to much self-delusion to cope with difficult personal and family situations, burying what is upsetting under a cloak of mundane trivia. Her examination of many unremarkable, unfulfilled and even pathetic lives is made forcefully, giving rise to much reflection on what it means to be human. A very rewarding read
The little virtues by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 2018 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As featured in The New Yorker! #x93;As far as the education of children is concerned," states Natalia Ginzburg in this collection of her finest and best-known short essays, #x93;I think they should be taught not the little virtues but the great ones. Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money; not caution but courage and a contempt for danger; not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but a love of one's neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know." Whether she writes of the loss of a friend, Cesare Pavese; or what is inexpugnable of W
