About the book:

This book contains two novellas of family life: a) FAMILY centres on an architect and author, Carmine Donati, his broken marriage, his relations with the translator Irana, and with the children. The fragments are tellingly chosen to catch the atmosphere and anxieties of characters approaching unexpected crisis. b) BORGHCSIA concerns a widow living alone, but close enough to her brother-in-law, the antique dealer, and her young daughter and son-in-law, to watch - now on the margin, now caught up in events - the neighbourhood the neighbourhood cats, and her own creatures. Her crisis stalks her.... // LITERARY REVIEW: This volume includes two novellas of family life, where Natalia Ginzburg is 'expert at detailing the ebb and flow of irritation and affection, which makes up the pattern of all relationships'
