The Last Cannoli: A Sicilian-American Family Comes of Age through the Ancient Power of Story-telling

by Camille Cusumano

The Last Cannoli is a fast-paced read in a voice that is fresh and powerful. It introduces the Donitella family, ordinary people with extraordinary tales to tell. Spanning four decades, the novel opens its mouth-watering tale in the ’50s when the father’s ritual story telling begins to take on the power of prayer amidst the cheerful cacophony of this large Sicilian-American family. The Donitellas, their house, and their stories will stay with you and you’ll keep thinking of them as one thinks of interesting people one has just met.
