Críticas:

Editorial Reviews "There is one book...which has meant more to me than any other: "The Little Virtues," by the Italian novelist, essayist, playwright, short-story writer, translator, and political activist Natalia Ginzburg." - The New Yorker Sept. 2016 "The book that taught me what I want to teach my daughter." --Belle Boggs "A glowing light of modern Italian literature . . . Ginzburg's magic is the utter simplicity of her prose, suddenly illuminated by one word that makes a lightning streak of a plain phrase. . . . As direct and clean as if it were carved in stone, it yet speaks thoughts of the heart." -- The New York Times Book Review "Considered among the best writers in contemporary Italy, Ginzburg should appeal to a wide American audience with this collection of essays" - Publishers Weekly "These little virtues then, this little book, pack a tremendous punch. By loving life, Ginzburg suggests, by working with love and enthusiasm, by embracing the homeliest details of daily existence with astonishment and joy, we may legitimately hope to conquer--or at least break even against--the worldly and leaden forces of materialism and fear." - LA Times "She is the author of six works of fiction, several collections of essays, a play ('I Married You for the Fun of It') that has been produced in Italy, France and England, and a critical biography of the family of the 19th-century novelist Allesandro Manzoni, which Mary McCarthy called an 'original and engrossing work.'" - New York Times "Clarity, precision and wit mark the work of Natalia Ginzburg."

Reseña del editor:

"As far as the education of children is concerned," states Natalia Ginzburg in this collection of her finest and best-known short essays, "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 World War II; or the Abruzzi, where she and her first husband lived in forced residence under Fascist rule; or the importance of silence in our society; or her vocation as a writer; or even a pair of worn-out shoes, Ginzburg brings to her reflections the wisdom of a survivor and the spare, wry, and poetically resonant style her readers have come to recognize.

"A glowing light of modern Italian literature . . . Ginzburg's magic is the utter simplicity of her prose, suddenly illuminated by one word that makes a lightning streak of a plain phrase. . . . As direct and clean as if it were carved in stone, it yet speaks thoughts of the heart." --The New York Times Book Review
