Women of a Certain Age Book Description :

Situated at the crossroads of gender studies, narratology, and cultural studies, this book investigates the impact that the demographic and cultural revolutions of the last century have had on Italian womens' life courses.

A Certain Age Book Description :

A Certain Age is an unconventional, evocative work of history and a moving reflection on memory, modernity, space, time, and the limitations of traditional historical narratives.

When Mrázek began his interviews, he expected to discuss phenomena such as the transition from...
