Untying The Apron
Daughters Remember Mothers of the 1950s
Lorri Neilsen Glenn

Writing Cultural Difference
Italian-Canadian Creative and Critical Works
Giulia De Gasperi, Maria Cristina Seccia, Licia Canton, Michael Mirolla
Writing Cultural Difference is a welcome addition to Canadian literary studies. The publication of this volume certainly dispels the belief that Italian-Canadian writing was a passing phenomenon three decades ago. The new generation of writers no longer focuses on immigration or speaks the dialect of their grandparents, but that heritage...
