Book News Annotation:

Capello (English, University of Rhode Island) combines the bilingual journals of her grandfather, her mother's poetry, Sicilian folklore, and dreamwork with her own reminiscences of growing up in an immigrant family in a working-class suburb of Philadelphia. She explores the contradictions of her father's rage and gardening, and her mother's poetry and agoraphobia. As a lesbian who has entered the middle class, she celebrates the subversive desire in her family's responses to the forces shaping their lives. No index.
