Written by an award winning novelist, these stories present a rich and candid account of growing up and growing old in Sicily and America. The twenty-three stories are separate, but also linked. Original Sin, the opening story set in Sicily in 1900, pushes a father-son conflict to its tragic conclusion. Its protagonist, Peter Marino, emigrates to America, where his descendants experience the conflicts, hopes, and needs that add up to the human condition.
