Bread Upon The Water by Robert Fasone

Sonny DiBari is an Italian immigrant who jumps ship to start life in a new country. Life is food on the table and working to provide it. Gussie believes children should support the family in any way she decides. Her kids don't feel the same way. It is all she can do to manage the chaos. Sonnyboy is awaiting the trial date determining the course of his life. Vinny will do what is needed to help the family, including running to the Mafia. Valencia lives life her way or no way. Anna marries a man who hates her family. Debra's passion is food. Samantha's mistake leads to a terrible secret. Rosa works for the family. She wants out, but won't make the same mistake her older sisters made. Life in the DiBari family is not what it should be, but it can never be anything more than it is.

Bread Upon the Water is a remarkable account of the Italian-American experience in the vein of such literary classics as Jerre Mangione's Mount Allegro and Mario Puzo's Fortunate Pilgrim. It is an insightful rendering of family life steeped in present-day Italian-American culture. Mr. Fasone's characterizations are well drawn, enticing varied emotional reactions from the reader. The novel is ultimately a heartfelt and human depiction of an Italian-American family.

Bread Upon the Water is a remarkable story. Mr. Fasone's narrative is flowing and brilliantly drawn. His sparkling dialogue is what sets this book apart from others in presenting memorable characters. He has created a family of characters that you care about enough to want to see win. Bravo!

I consider myself an avid reader and was extremely disappointed when I read ¿Bread Upon the Water.¿ The prose switches back and forth from first person to third person narrative causing the reader to disconnect from all of the characters. ¿Bread Upon the Water,¿ is difficult to follow and hardly kept my interest. The attempt at creativity was meager and next time the author should consider using different names for his characters¿maybe something more original?

Robert Fasone's new novel, Bread Upon the Water, is gripping, well-paced, and excellently written. The author's dialogue brings his characters to life. You could believe you were sitting with them at the dinner table engrossed in the fluid and often volitale family relationships. Sonny DiBari and his family are characters that sparkle with life.
