At long last, Gay Talese, one of America's greatest living authors, employs his prodigious storytelling gifts to tell the saga of his own family's emigration to America from Italy in the years preceding World War II. Ultimately it is the story of all immigrant families and the hope and sacrifice that took them from the familiarity of the old world into the mysteries and challenges of the new. The author of "The Kingdom and the Power" turns his literary powers to the subject of his own family, offering a powerful portrayal of the Italian-American experience.
