Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Journalist and writer Maria Laurino blends autobiography and cultural history in this revealing look at Italian culture and its impact on Italian-American, and American, life. Particularly valuable is her discussion of stereotyping (both nostalgic and negative) and her insightful description of her struggle, beginning in adolescence, with her own Italian identity.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In this thoughtful, penetrating, and hilarious examination of third-generation ethnic identity, journalist and essayist Maria Laurino mixes memoir, social and cultural history, and reporting, as she sifts through the stereotypes bedeviling Italian-Americans.
