Issue 30 / Our Roots are Deep with Passion: Essays by Italian American Writers


30 / 2006

In the twenty-one nonfiction narratives anthologized in Our Roots are Deep with Passion, established and emerging writers reflect on the ways their lives have been accented with uniquely Italian American flavors. The pieces are as varied as their authors, but all explore the distinctive intersection of language, tradition, cuisine, and culture that characterize the diverse experience of Americans of Italian heritage. Creative Nonfiction Editor Lee Gutkind sums it up when he writes, “this collection is simultaneously sweet and explosive and, perhaps because of that, irrepressibly inspiring.”
