Anthology. Fiction. Poetry. Some translations from Italian and French, edited and with an introduction by Joseph Pivato. The most inclusive collection of its kind in North America, this anthology includes a wide variety of genres, from fiction and poetry to essays, plays, film scripts and memoirs. The more than fifty authors represented come from across Canada and have backgrounds in all regions of Italy. Organized in three sections, “Writers from Our Past,” “Writers for Our Time,” and “Ironies of Identity,” the book presents both published and unpublished excerpts from the work of writers of various ages and literary styles, providing a wide and heterogeneous view of the writing of Canadians of Italian descent.
