The Voices We Carry: Recent Italian American Women's Fiction (Picas)by Mary Jo Bona
Synopses & Reviews
The collection of women's fiction captures the voice and culture of Italian American ethnicity and the themes that surround it--from mother and daughter relations to common family rituals and celebrations. With a desire to reinvent the meanings associated with ethnicity in order to reestablish ties to the home country of Italy, this compilation presents pieces that allow women to develop new and strong positions within both American and Italian cultures. Adria Bernardi, Mary Bush, Rachel Guido DeVries, and Lynn Vannucci are just some of the many female, Italian American voices included in this poignant collection.
