Order by October 16 to receive the October selection, Images and Shadows: Part of a Life by Iris Origo. 

Origo’s father was a wealthy American and her mother an Irish peer’s daughter. She had a privileged childhood, moving between family estates in Long Island and Ireland while also traveling the world. After her father died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty-nine, she and her mother moved to Italy. Origo eventually found fulfillment in tending to the life of the La Foce, the country estate she and her Italian husband bought in southern Tuscany. Today La Foce’s historic gardens are visited by Iris Origo readers from all over the world. The NYRB Classics edition of Images and Shadows includes an afterword by journalist and translator Katia Lysy, Iris Origo’s granddaughter.
