Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stunning modern new cover reissue of one of Penelope Fitzgerald's best-loved novels Innocence is set in the 1950s, when Italy was picking up the pieces after the war. Chiara Ridolfi is the guileless daughter of a decrepit Italian family. Barney is her practical English girlfriend, who can sum up a man, she says, in one firm hand-grip. Salvatore is a penniless doctor from the south, who thinks he is proof against politics, social conscience and tenderness. Chiara's cousin, Cesare, says very little, which gives him time to think...

Synopsis:

From the author of "The Beginning of Spring" and "Offshore", this novel tells of a community and explores the lives of some of its characters.

Synopsis:

Beautiful Chiara is smitten by the brilliant but penniless doctor Salvatore. Desiring the unwilling Salvatore as a future husband, she engages in a series of comic attempts to land her object of affection, only to create a greater chasm between the star-crossed would-be lovers.
