Title: Natalia Ginzburg - Human Relationships in a Changing World
Description: New York/OXFORD: Berg, 1991. 1st. Hardcover. 14.4x22.1CM. "Responsive and sympathetic to the problems of both sexes, Ginzburg is necessarily more immediately receptive to the difficulties encountered by women in their attempts to survive and find fulfilment in what is still, especially in Italy, very much a man's world, and her work provides revealing insights into the struggles which are an inevitable part of this process. At the same time she is aware that women can sometimes contribute significantly to their own misfortune through naivety or stupidity and can thus be their own worst enemies in a social context which is already to their disadvantage. The author discusses these various elements of Natalia Ginzburg's writing and examines the development of her humorously pessimistic view of the human condition from the early short stories, through the novels, plays and essays of her middle years, to her most recent work focusing on the older generation." Main content approaching fine, being tight, clean, crisp and uncreased. Moderate wear externally to ends of spine and fore edge corners, minor damage top edge of rear board where cloth has split at each end of a dent; rear also bears several small impressions like puncture marks, and the cream cloth appears faintly grubby.. Good .
