By John J. D'Emic on June 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
The first 2 or 3 chapters are really quite compelling. The author explains the powerful emotional component of the Italian-American writers
at the turn of the century into the 1940's. I found that all quite
gripping to read. The last several chapters fade somewhat in comparison
to the earlier ones, but, overall, I would recommend the book to anyone
interested in American literature.

Perhaps I missed the point of the book. I had expected extended excerpts of the mentioned authors' writings, rather than brief critiques on the authors themselves.

The book was in the exact condition it said it would be in when I ordered it. The book itself was a wonderful book and it came on time.
