"Situated at the crossroads of gender studies, narratology, and cultural studies, this book investigates the impact that the demographic and cultural revolutions of the last century have had on Italian women's life courses." "The chronological focus of this study is the 1990s, a decade located at the end of a century deeply marked by women's search for identity, their growth as historical subjects, and the demographic explosion of older women in Italy's population. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, women's life expectancy has doubled in a European country that today competes with Spain for the world's lowest birth rate and that counts more elderly than young people."--Jacket
