books > STRANGERS I KNOW (La straniera)

Join author Claudia Durastanti at the Museo Italo Americano in her in-person presentation of Strangers I Know, the English translation of her book La straniera in an event organized by the IIC San Francisco in collaboration with the Leonardo da Vinci Society of San Francisco and the Museo Italo Americano.

Every family has its own mythology, but in this family none of the myths match up. Claudia’s mother says she met her husband when she stopped him from jumping off a bridge. Her father says it happened when he saved her from an attempted robbery. Both parents are deaf but couldn’t be more different; they can’t even agree on how they met, much less who needed saving. Kinetic, formally dazzling, and spectacularly original, this book is a funny and profound portrait of an unconventional family that makes us look anew at how language shapes our understanding of ourselves.

The event will take place in person at the Museo Italo Americano, Fort Mason, Building C, San Francisco.
