Publisher's Summary

In Lessico famigliare, il riaffiorare alla memoria di parole, espressioni, frasi e modi di dire sentiti tante volte in casa da Natalia Ginzburg, scandisce, con ironia e tenerezza, la storia della sua famiglia - i Levi - ebrei e antifascisti, nell'Italia tra gli anni Venti e gli anni Cinquanta del Novecento.

beautiful reading of an Italian classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Mergherita Buy reads beautifully, her Italian is so crisp and clear (she is an actress after all) her tone shows such an understanding of the significance of what she's reading. A real treat.

What did you like best about this story?

It's a great novel

What does Margherita Buy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

An immediacy and an understanding of the sub-text.

beautiful story very well told

the characters, especially the mother and father, really came alive thanks to all the typical phrases that the writer recalls
