Description


NONNO TELL US A STORY IS A DELIGHTFUL MEMOIR OF A YOUNG BOY'S LIFE BEGUN IN THE POSTWAR MOLISE REGION OF ITALYAND TRANSFORMED WHEN HE IMMIGRATES TO THE UNITED STATES JUST AS HE REACHES ADOLESCENCE. REAL LIFE EPISODES, FROM THE TOWN OF PAGLIARONE TO THE CITY OF DENVER, ARE SET AGAINST A BACKDROP OF ITALY'S HISTORY, ART, FOLKLORE, AND SPORTS WORLD. OFTEN POIGNANT AND MORE OFTEN HUMOUROUS, THIS PORTRAIT OF FAMILY LOVE THROUGHOUT ITS STRUGGLES AND SUCCESSES IN TWO WORLDS IS AS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BOOKS OF THIS TYPE AS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE AND WRITE ABOUT THEM. IF YOU LOVE ITALIAN AS WELL AS ITALIAN-AMERICAN CULTURE, THIS IS A MUST READ THAT WILL BE HARD TO PUT DOWN.
