Overview

Don't Ever Forget Where You Came From!
BEING ITALIAN: A MEMOIR is about a big Italian - American family blending the generations in the 1950's and 1960's in Brooklyn, N.Y. It is the story of huge Sunday dinners with Grandpa's homemade red wine and Grandma's big apron, big heart and thick accent.
BEING ITALIAN: A MEMOIR will have you reminiscing about childhood memories, no matter where your immigrant family came from. Younger generations learn about their past, because by telling the story of one family and their struggles to become Americans, Marino Amoruso, in a larger sense, tells the tale of millions of people who came to this nation seeking a better life.
Known for his imaginative, expressive writing and dry wit, Amoruso touches us with both laughter and tears. INCLUDED in this memoir is "AUNT PHIL'S COOKBOOK"- a special collection of family recipes.
WINNER - SONS OF ITALY LITERARY HERITAGE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.
