In We Are Family, Bartolomei uses humor and a touch of magical realism to craft a witty but serious story of an Italian family caught between the glories of the past and the economic tensions of the present, all while holding court for the young savant Almerico Santamaria. Much like Amor Towles’s A Gentleman in Moscow, the hardest part about finishing We Are Family is realizing at its end that the time with its charming narrator is now done.
