What is an Italian North American? What is Italian-American culture? How is an immigrant group that is no longer immigrant perceived? These are the central questions that Pasquale Verdicchio tries to answer in these polemical essays which place Antonio Gramsci beside the Super Mario Brothers and Spike Lee. A poet, Pasquale Verdicchio is considered a leading translator of the works by Italian poets. He is currently head of the Writing Program in the Department of Literature at the University of California, San Diego.
