Text: English, Italian (translation)Review:
Natalia Ginzburg's essays are like pen and ink drawings. Her vocabulary is elemental, her style is not lush; through the simplicity come thoughts that are deep and generous, as if from seeing the bare tree, you suddenly envision spring. Included here are essays about living under fascism, descriptions of her old city and her little village, stories of friends who have died. She talks of raising children: "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; nor shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but love for one's neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know." Natalia Ginzburg writes with love about writing, with disdain about England, and with insight and honesty about how people grow up. This is a red wine book - to be sipped slowly in bed, read quietly when the children are asleep or the work day is over. It takes you out of the everyday and reminds you of the difference between the little and great virtues in life. -- For great reviews of books for girls, check out Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. -- From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Erica Bauermeister
