Description
Against all odds-a new language, new customs, and prejudice-Italian Americans built a new life in Lamerica, the land of success. The Italian American Family Album brings us to the heart of the immigrant experience through diaries, letters, interviews, newspaper articles, and fascinating period photographs. Getting through immigration, finding a steady job and a respectable place to live, and learning the "American way" of doing things were a challenge. Many Italian Americans bonded together, creating communities in which family loyalty prevailed. Through the stories of Italian Americans such as writer Gay Talese, entertainer Tony Bennett, and baseball great Yogi Berra we see how ties to the old country survived. We also meet unknown Italians, real people whose sorrows and joys, laughter and pain are immediate and moving. Book jacket.
