This anthology gathers fiction, poetry, memoirs, oral histories, and journalistic pieces by some of the best Italian American writers to chronicle the Italian American experience in the Garden State. The collection features male and female writers whose work focuses on Italian American life and the distinctive culture of New Jersey, which long has been home to a large and vital Italian American community. Filled with passion, humor, and grace, these writings depict a variety of experiences, including poignant but failed attempts at conformity and the alienation often felt by ethnic Americans. The authors also speak of the strength gained through the preservation of their communities and the realization that it is often the difference from the norm that helps them succeed. Although it deals with only one ethnic group, the volume addresses in microcosm the complexities of American identity, depicting situations and conveying emotions that will resonate with people of all immigrant ancestries. Italian American Writers on New Jersey features writers who have a national following, such as Gay Talese, Tom Perrotta, Louise DeSalvo, and Maria Laurino, as well as lesser-known authors. The volume moves beyond stereotypes, providing a fresh perspective on the diversity, complexity, and richness of Italian American experiences. Publication of this book is made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Italian and Italian American Heritage Studies, State of New Jersey.
