FAMILY CHRONICLE tells the story of two brothers: one leads a life of privilege, while the other survives as a struggling writer. Pratolini’s brilliant prose reveals the depth of spiritual strength in these two men as they draw together once again and develop bonds of love and trust for one another. Family Chronicle (Cronaca familiare) has been critically and popularly recognized as among the most important Italian novels of the twentieth century.
VASCO PRATOLINI, one of Italy’s leading neo-realist novelists and screen writers, framed his tale against the backdrop of the urban poor of Florence, the rise of Fascism, and the disastrous effects of World War II.
