Original Italian title: 'Tutti i nostri ieri' (1952). Translated by Angus Davidson. This translation first published in 1956 by Martin Secker & Warburg Ltd. In a small town in northern Italy the darting figure of Signora Maria could be seen in the early morning, collecting dung with a little shovel to manure her rose-trees. She kept house for an old anti-fascist and his children Ippolito, Concettina, Giustino and Anna. Across the street lived Emmanuele, Amalia and Giuma, whose father owned the soap factory. Then the war came. 'All our yesterdays' tells how the children grow into the Second World War and its aftermath. At the heart of the novel is Anna. After a youthful indiscretion, she is married off to Cenzo Rena, an eccentric family friend. All the characters learn war's cruel, momentous lessons. Natalia Ginzburg provides a classic account of how people struggle from adolescence into the adult world. This is also a political novel, the second part following Anna and Cenzo into the poorest regions of southern Italy, recalling Christ Stopped at Eboli, and witnessing to the beginning of radical change. 300 pag.

Über diesen Titel


From "one of the most distinguished writers of modern Italy" (New York Review of Books), a classic novel of society in the midst of a war.

This powerful novel is set against the background of Italy from 1939 to 1944, from the anxious months before the country entered the war, through the war years, to the Allied victory with its trailing wake of anxiety, disappointment, and grief. In the foreground are the members of two families. One is rich, the other is not. In All Our Yesterdays, as in all of Ms. Ginzburg’s novels, terrible things happen suicide, murder, air raids, and bombings. But seemingly less overwhelming events, like a family quarrel, adultery, or a deception, are given equal space, as if to say that, to a victim, adultery and air raids can be equally maiming.

In this poignant story of the trauma and redemption that families face in the midst of terror, Natalia Ginzburg writes with the elegance that has assured her rightful place among history’s acclaimed authors.

About the Author:

Natalia Ginzburg was born in Palermo, Italy in 1916. She was an Italian author whose work explored family relationships, politics during and after the Fascist years and World War II, and philosophy. She wrote novels, short stories, and essays, for which she received the Strega Prize and Bagutta Prize. Modest and intensely reserved, Ginzburg never shied away from the traumas of history, whether writing about the Turin of her childhood, the Abruzzi countryside, or contemporary Rome―all the while approaching those traumas only indirectly, through the mundane details and catastrophes of personal life. Most of her works were also translated into English and published in the United Kingdom and United States. She wrote acclaimed translations of both Proust and Flaubert into Italian. She died in Rome in 1991.

Angus Davidson was known primarily for his work as a translator and publisher and was associated with the circle of artists, writers and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury Group. He translated the works of Alberto Moravia and Mario Praz, and wrote an innovative biography of Edward Lear that focused on his achievements as an artist.
