My First Seven Years (plus a few more) by Dario Fo
Book DescriptionA great coming-of-age novel, "My First Seven Years (plus a few more)" is Dario Fo's fantastic extraordinary memoir of his formative years, following his railwayman father around the various villages on the shores of Lago Maggiore in Northern Italy where they lived. Born in 1926 and growing up between the wars, Fo witnessed at close hand the struggles between Fascists and Partisans in the mountainous north. The book is filled with the anecdotes, characters and sketches that were the inspiration for the creative genius of this winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature (1997). Above all it is a book filled with the characteristic vitality and humour that springs from all his written work. More than just a memoir, "My First Seven Years' is a work of literature that follows in a great line of imaginative childhood accounts, such as "Proust's Remembrance of Things Past" and "Fournier's Le Grand Meaulnes, through, Italo Calvino's Marcovaldo stories."

Books By Author Dario Fo
Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Paperback (October 2003)
Highly contentious and subversive at the time of its first production in Milan in 1970, this has since become one of Fo's best known and translated text. Based on a true story it throws in to relief the judicial and police corruption of 1970s Italy. Simon Nyes's superb translation brings out the parallels with our situation today.
Plays, Paperback (December 1996)
Two plays by one of Europe's greatest comic writers.
