It describes the death in custody of her husband Leone Ginzburg, a noted anti-fascist, and the persecution of the Jews in Italy during the period of Benito Mussolini.

Family sayings Family Sayings (Original title Lessico famigliare) is a novel by the Italian author Natalia Ginzburg, first published in 1963. It is a semi-biographical description of aspects of the daily life of her family, dominated by her father, the renowned histologist, Giuseppe Levi. The book is both an ironic and affectionate chronicle of life in the period 1920-1950, portrayed in terms of habits, behavior and, above all, linguistic communications, from which the book takes its title. People and events are brought to life by what they do and what they say. In addition to family members, including her mother, father, brothers and sisters the book also describes many friends and acquaintances.
Common Sayings Source This source provides insight into the Synoptic Problem and lends more evidence for the two-document hypothesis and the "Q" source.
Common Sayings Source Christopher Mount of Chicago University had described Crossan’s methodology as “overly simplified.” Mount feels that Crossan’s unwillingness to question a fundamental perspective of the Christian sources with which he is working is evident at many points in his reconstruction, which leads to a slant in his generally well-thought-out analysis. Although, Mount ends his review by stating that attempting to better Crossan’s work “cannot be done with greater force of argument and command of the data than [he] has brought to bear on the task.”
Common Sayings Source Based on three scholars’ previous work, Crossan uses the research in order to establish his theory of a Common Sayings Source.
Common Sayings Source The Common Sayings Source suggests that there are enough parallels in the "Q" source and Gospel of Thomas to suggest a common source.
Common Sayings Source Crossan believes that this Common Sayings Source provided a foundation for the two later documents known as "Q" and The Gospel of Thomas.
Common Sayings Source The common material believed to be the Common Sayings Source can be found in the “special” material of the Synoptic Gospels.
Common Sayings Source Koester adds insight when he concluded that Thomas did not evolve from the editing of Synoptic parables but from an independent oral source. From “careful analysis of the parable of the Sower in the Synoptics and Thomas, John Homan concludes not only that the version in Thomas is independent, but that it does indeed permit us to recover an earlier version of this parable.” These examples provide evidence that Crossan’s theory may be accurate when he discusses an early dating of Thomas and the independent oral source.
Common Sayings Source Another important issue of Crossan’s theory is discovering whether or not the connections between "Q" and Thomas are anything more than a coincidence. Many scholars seem to have no issue believing that Thomas began from an oral tradition, which is suggested by the theory of the Common Sayings Source. Koester believes “Thomas is either dependent upon the earliest version of "Q", or more likely shares with the author of "Q" one or several early collections of Jesus’ sayings ... Thus Thomas attests to a stage in the "Logoi Gattung" shared by "Q" and Thomas which had not yet been redacted under the influence of Apocalyptic expectation.” This seems surprisingly similar to the Common Sayings Source theory where Crossan contends that a common source without apocalyptic or Gnostic information is the source for "Q" and Thomas. McLean provides an explanation for any slight variation that can be found between the sayings in the two sources. “One would expect that the discrete sayings collections available to "Q" and Thomas would have varied in content and been made available at different times.”
