Edges, both jagged and sharp, spring from the

tension of living and maturing between two conflicting factors:

cultural assimilation – on the one hand suppressing ethnic identity

in the public square – and on the other, developing a personal

identity which internalized that heritage. Edge upon edge, these

elements represent the conflicts for Italian immigrants within the

melting pot of L’america. This collection of memoirs and reflections, poetry and prose, takes the reader through one man’s experiences

as a first born Italian in America and an American in Italy.

Italian-Americans will recognize the challenges of assimilation

in “Edge City”. Readers of all ethnicities

will gain a new understanding of

the Italian culture in America.
