Editorial Reviews

Review

“Vescovi makes you wish you wish you could taste Tony’s wine, Desolina’s tortellini; makes you wish you had grandparents like these”.
The Internet Review of Books

“Eat Now; Talk Later offers a model of how to tell family stories humorously yet respectfully, from a culture that isn’t tell-all”.
Ambassador Magazine (National Italian American Foundation)

“The most endearing quality of Vescovi’s stories is without a doubt the genuine, laugh-while-you-are-reading humor, which he exposes without a trace of ridicule.”
Catholic Fiction.net

“This memoir celebrates the breath of family life: loyalty, struggle, humor and love.”
La Gazzetta Italiana

“A book for everyone, for those in Italy eager to know more of Italian Americans and for those who in this book can find their roots and laugh, smile and be moved.”
Italian Heritage Magazine

You do not have to be Italian...to appreciate Vescovi’s book, as every story gives the reader an understanding of what it is like to have family with a foreign background.”
Italian Insider, Rome

“Read it! It will make you realize just how precious our family members are, with all their quirks and their faults!”
The Guiltless Reader
 

"Eat Now; Talk Later is well written and well edited.  The author’s voice is engaging, as is his sympathy for his father….The photographs included with the text are lovely additions to the book…[as are] his grandparents’ favorite recipes.”
Italophiles

From the Author

These 52 hilarious stories, a twist on the American immigrant tale, are a testament to love, loyalty, and frequent half-truths. You don't have to be Italian to enjoy this combination biography/memoir.
