Read full description of the books:



A reflective, beautifully written account of an amazing life. Origo's family and her own life embraced Italy, America, Ireland, and England. She lived among influential expatriates in Florence, helped revive wasteland in southern Tuscany, and experienced WWII at first-hand. She decides to focus on what life was like across the generations of her life rather than on more intimate family details, although she has some great growing up and courtship stories. Omission of other intimate details is understandable, although I was happy to have Caroline Moorehead's biography to fill me in on for instance, what happened to her son Gianni and what more of her relationships might have been like. Still the omissions Origo makes, the choices of what she wanted to omit and preserve in her account also provide significant insight into her character. This is a wonderful book that I read over and over.
This edition is nicely printed, but the cover is not happy. The image of Origo is sliced out of a photo of herself and her son Gianni, and the glowing background looks eery.
