Almost every family has them: sayings that are a kind of private language and which, in many cases, continue in use across the generations. These family sayings are often impenetrable to outsiders, but there is also a rich vein of domestic catch phrase that is common to many families, and it is this that Nigel Rees celebrates in As We Say In Our House. Drawing on a wide variety of sources, but especially on family sayings that have been contributed to his BBC Radio programme Quote...Unquote, Nigel Rees provides a shamelessly nostalgic and warmly humorous record of an area of language that would otherwise go largely unrecorded. The popular expressions explored here also include personal mottoes, peculiar proverbs and nonsensical riddles.

A masterpiece of European literature that blends family memoir and fiction An Italian family, sizable, with its routines and rituals, crazes, pet phrases, and stories, doubtful, comical, indispensable, comes to life in the pages of Natalia Ginzburg’s Family Lexicon. Giuseppe Levi, the father, is a scientist, consumed by his work and a mania for hiking—when he isn’t provoked into angry remonstration by someone misspeaking or misbehaving or wearing the wrong thing. Giuseppe is Jewish, married to Lidia, a Catholic, though neither is religious; they live in the industrial city of Turin where, as the years pass, their children find ways of their own to medicine, marriage, literature, politics. It is all very ordinary, except that the background to the story is Mussolini’s Italy in its steady downward descent to race law and world war. The Levis are, among other things, unshakeable anti-fascists. That will complicate their lives. Family Lexicon is about a family and language—and about storytelling not only as a form of survival but also as an instrument of deception and domination. The book takes the shape of a novel, yet everything is true. “Every time that I have found myself inventing something in accordance with my old habits as a novelist, I have felt impelled at once to destroy [it],” Ginzburg tells us at the start. “The places, events, and people are all real.”
