Natalia Ginzburg

One of the most renowned and distinctive voices in postwar Italian literature, NATALIA GINZBURG (1916–1991) has been praised for her inimitable style and her unforgettable novels depicting private lives in a disrupted social landscape. A prolific dramatist as well as essayist and novelist, she is best known in this country for her novels All Our Yesterdays, The City and the House, and Voices in the Evening, as well as her autobiographical work The Things We Used to Say, and her biography of the great nineteenth century man of letters Alessandro Manzoni. Ginzburg grew up in Turin and spent most of her adult life in Rome.
