More About the Author

Marisa Labozzetta is the author of the novel, STAY WITH ME,LELLA, in which a less than conventional choice made early in a conventional marriage tests a couple's notions of love and loyalty in a tale of sex, betrayal and family politics. Kirkus called her second book, AT THE COPA, "a funny, finely wrought collection of short stories that stirs up the emotional currents beneath seemingly placid lives of middle-aged characters in the old age of youth." It was a John Gardner Fiction Award finalist (2009) and nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Loss, Love, and the Supernatural in the intertwining lives of five women drive her most recent collection of linked short stories, THIEVES NEVER STEAL IN THE RAIN, an Eric Hoffer Award winner in 2014. Her novel, SOMETIMES IT SNOWS IN AMERICA, loosely based on the true story of a Somali woman's life in Africa and the United States, was an Eric Hoffer Award Finalist in 2013.

Most of us don't know much about the lives of immigrants in this country, especially immigrants from places like Somalia or Kenya.

Marisa Labozzetta's "Sometimes It Snows in America" is a terrific read. The story of Fatma's journey from East Africa to New England portrays the difficult life of an immigrant: the overwhelming challenges of the new culture and the relentless yearning for the old. I suspect much of Fatma's experience is universal to any immigrant regardless of the old society left or the new society joined. Description is wonderfully done: New England definitely feels like New England and the East Africa description is so good that I can't help wonder if Ms Labozzetta traveled there to research her book. I was completely immersed in this book.

Most of us don't know much about the lives of immigrants in this country, especially immigrants from places like Somalia or Kenya. Woven within a gritty, compassionate story of love, drugs, sex "Sometimes It Snows In America" opens us up to another world. I highly recommend it..............Tony L.

Truly enjoyed reading Sometimes It Snows In The Rain....especially of course the main character Fatma and how she navigated her journey. I've also read Ms. Labozzetta's Thieves Never Steal In The Rain....I love the way she weaves a great story!!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading, "Sometimes It Snows In America" and found it hard
to put down. Marisa Labozzetta is a gifted writer whose creativity captures readers'
attention and interest in her novels. I found myself fully absorbed in the story of Fatma,
her challenges and culture. The novel is perfect for those belonging to a book club. I
have already purchased copies as gifts for friends and family and give it my highest
recommendation.

The protagonist leads a hard life from birth through the end. This book is an interesting look at life changes thrown at us and those we chose, acculturation and how hard it is, the power of friendship. With the backdrop of "only you can change you" and the importance of reaching out, this author tells a good story. At times it becomes a bit unbelievable, but for the most part held my attention. I'm glad I read it.

Truly a book I could not put down. I was intrigued from the beginning and felt overwhelming compassion for the Somali/Arab princess turned forced U.S. immigrant. So many injustices plagued her life. Did she ever really have control over anything? When she did make choices they had disastrous consequences. A sneak peek into African culture, immigrant life and the criminal mind. Labozzetta's best book yet!
