Behind closed doors : Her father's house and other stories of Sicily by Maria Messina( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maria Messina presents the captivating and brutal realities of women living in early-twentieth-century Italy. Behind Closed Doors portrays the habits and gestures, the words spoken and those left unsaid, of individuals caught between the traditions they respect and a desire to ease the social restrictions in their lives. Messina's stories reveal a world in which women are shuttered in their houses, virtual servants to their families, and working men immigrate to the United States in fortune-seeking droves. It is also a world of unstated privileges in which habits and implied commands perpetuate women's servitude
