The city is Rome. The house is in the little town of Monte Fermo. The protagonist of the novel is Lucrezia, mother of five and lover of many. Translated from the Italian by Dick Davis. 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 less awesome events, like a family quarrel, an adultery, or a deception, are given equal space, as if to say that to a victim adultery and air raids can be equally maiming. All Our Yesterdaysgives a sharp portrait of a society hungry for change, but betrayed by war. During the period described in this novel, Natalia Ginzburg was married to the writer Leone Ginzburg. Because of his underground activities, he was interned under Mussolini's reign, along with his family, in a restricted area in the Abruzzis. When the Ginzburgs later moved to Rome, Leone was arrested and tortured by the fascists, and killed, leaving Natalia alone to raise her three children.
