Italian Stories

By Joseph Papaleo

Papaleo’s collection of 26 interwoven short stories dramatizes Italian-American family life in the Bronx during the 1940s and 1950s. The stories mainly deal with 2nd generation Italian-Americans who struggle for mainstream acceptance while coming to terms with the traditions of their immigrant parents.
