Dictionary of Literary Biography on (Maria) Francesca Duranti (Rossi)

Francesca Duranti has contributed to post-World War II Italian literature through her close examination of personal experiences, especially her relationships with her mother and husbands, and through her exploration of the dynamics of writing fiction. Duranti's novels show how life affords the material for art and how one's devotion to art can affect one's life.
