    I love this book, the way Natalia Ginzburg tells with much humor and affection, about the slightly dysfunctional family in wich she grew up There is a good pace in the telling wich shows the enthusiasm with which it was probably written and makes you now read it.

    AKA Family Sayings Long after I ve finished it, it still lingers with me The author tells about her family through their particular lexicon that s formed along the years through anecdotes, stories, reactions and weird expressions In the beginning it s amusing, and then, the second world war starts, and although she keeps using a light tone, the occurrences start weighing with their seriousness persecution, illness, jail, deaths She has an expression her mother uses she do AKA Family Sayings Long after I ve finished it, it still lingers with me The author tells about her family through their particular lexicon that s formed along the years through anecdotes, stories, reactions and weird expressions In the beginning it s amusing, and then, the second world war starts, and although she keeps using a light tone, the occurrences start weighing with their seriousness persecution, illness, jail, dea...
