The Garden of the Finzi-Continis
A touching love story, a penetrating study of memory and a subtle work of historical reconstruction,┬áBassani’s lyrical, yet unsparing, depiction of the destruction of a family and a culture as anti-semitism spreads through Italian society on the eve of World War II has long been recognised as a modern classic and the masterpiece of a distinguished European writer.
