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.

Peg Boyers is the Executive Editor of Salmagundi Magazine and the author of three books of poems, Hard Bread, Honey with Tobacco, and To Forget Venice. She teaches poetry workshops at Skidmore College and at the New York State Summer Writers Institute. She resides in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
