1 of 1 people found the following review helpful 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.

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.
