This collection voices the ongoing fascination with ethnicity in America. In this case, it is Italian-American ethnicity and its attendant themes -- the ineluctable bonds between mothers and daughters, granddaughters and grandparents; the family rituals centered around but not limited to celebration and dining; and the desire to reinvent the meanings of ethnicity, especially for third-generation writers, in order to re-establish ties to the homeland country (Italy) and to renegotiate women's position within both American and Italian cultures. Authors invited: Mary Bush, Rachel Guido DeVries, Daniela Gioseffi, Diana Cavallo, Lisa Ruffolo, Laura Marello, Dodici Azpadu, Susan J. Leonardi, Adria Bernardi, Phyllis Capello, Giovanna Capone, Dorothy Byrant, Anne Paolucci, and Lynn Vannucci.
