Fabrizio's Passion is the author's English-language version of his French-language novel, Avril ou l'anti-passion. This baroque novel, divided into twenty-five chapters, explores the different facets of an Italian family living in North America. It is through the technique of a multi-voiced narrative that the readers are permitted to see what might constitute a possible portrait of the ethnic family in American pluricultural societies. More than the regular linear plot, what is offered here is the retelling of the various private experiences that the Notte family has undergone for almost half a century, and always during the month of April.
