Pillars of Lace is an eclectic collection of the finest writing by Italian-Candian women. It is the first anthology of its kind in Canada. This anthology showcases excerpts from a variety of genres: poetry, short stories, film scripts, novels, personal memoirs and journalism. The work, some of which is translated into English, is from a complex tricultural landscape. "Beware, woman / in the palm / of your hand / you hold / the fountain / of genes." (Carmen Laurenza Ziolkowski, "Progeny"). This anthology is the perfect starting point for an introduction to and a taste of Italian-Canadian writing by women.
