Publisher's Summary

A poignant portrait of a family’s struggle for redemption

The funeral of Edward’s mother brings him home for the first time in years. Though his return rekindles his affection for his childhood home, it also triggers a resurgence of the family tensions that caused him to leave in the first place. As Edward becomes tangled in his family’s web of corrosive secrets, his homecoming tips a precariously balanced dynamic into sudden chaos.

The Italian Girl is Murdoch’s compelling story of a man’s reunion with his estranged family, and of the tragedy that shocks them all into confronting their dark past.

An artisanal book

This to me was representational of many sixties books. I bought both the book and narration, but ended up only listening, because the narration was excellent. It is the artfully written story of a most disfunctional family, jarred into self-awakening by a momentous event.
