Matteo, due to some issues with his lover, decides to leave Milan and come back home. Not at his father house, however, because maybe he never forgave Matteo for being gay. Matteo moves with his grandmother, where he finds also his three aunts and his pregnant cousin.
Matteo must then learn how to live with his family, and this change will bring him new responsibilities, since he will have to help his invalid grandmother and do the house chores.
Generations is a moving and compelling book, and at the same time it is light as a feather; Matteo’s coming of age will happen also by discovering the past of his family and the difficulties faced by the previous generation.
This book was truly a beautiful discovery, both concerning the narration and the illustrations, a book I absolutely suggest to read.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
