Happiness, As Such
Natalia Ginzburg, Minna Proctor
Mr B's review
Set against the backdrop of an Italy struggling with post-war political extremism, this novel focusses on the complicated lives and loves of an Italian family in the 1970’s. Their story is revealed through the letters written and received by the adored son, Michele – who has had to flee the country due to his own political activism. The trials and tribulations veer from the ridiculous to the tragic and the letters themselves are as much about what is left unsaid.
