I picked up Maria Giura’s What My Father Taught Me intending to read just the Note to Reader and the title poem and to save the rest for a little at a time, but then the sublimity of her work took over. Within an hour and a half I had devoured it. It’s such a touching book, a charming little pearl that has an ocean of love and devotion for family, faith, heritage, and the gift of being human. God has given Giura the gift of expressing so poignantly not only her journey but aspects of all our journeys. Furthermore, in her poem, “Christ in Concrete,” she asked, “Where are all the other Italian-American writers?” It’s so true, and yet here is one of the very capable, vibrant ones right before our eyes. I so look forward to whatever book Giura has to offer us next.
