#CatThursday - #Authors and #Cats (74) Natalia Ginzburg

Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite lolcat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! Share the link to your post with your comment below.

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author with their cat(s), pictured with a cat(s), or guest posts by cat loving authors who also (sometimes) write about cats.

Natalia Ginzburg (July 14, 1916 - October 07, 1991) was an Italian novelist, essayist, translator and playwright, who has written of her unconventional family and its opposition in Turin to Fascist oppression. Ginzburg's novels are a mixture of reminiscence, observation, and invention. Much of her fiction is written in the first person in a plain style, and constructed almost entirely of dialogue.
She published her first novel under the pseudonym Alessandra Torninparte. -via Goodreads

Prolific author of The Little Virtues, All Our Yesterdays, Voices in the Evening, The Manzoni Family and many more...and very obviously a cat lover.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Her cats were beautiful. Here's my Cat Thursday

  2. It seems like a lot of authors enjoy their Siamese kitties! They are pretty.

    Here's mine:

  3. Well, Ginzburg certainly doesn't appear to be getting any joy out of her cat!

  4. What lovely kitties, and thank you for introducing this author! I am far too unaware of so many good writers out there. Ginzburg's work will be a fun read after my next book buying spree.
