Sweet Lemons 2: International Writings with a Sicilian Accent

Rate this book
Sweet Lermons 2 continues the tradition established in the first volume "Collectively, these writings serve as a remarkable testimony to the richness, diversity, tenacity, and adaptability of those who trace their roots (and their routes) to the ancient island of Sicily." This volume is an excellent guide to Sicelitude.Several dozen Sicilian-Canadaians and Sicilian-Americans reflect on what makes a Sicilian.

An anthology that reunites the works of writers of Sicilian origin from Canada, the US, Australia and other countries. The genres are complex-from literary essays to short stories, poems, fragments from novels as well as legends and fairy tales reminding us of several aspects of Sicilian culture.
I particularly liked the works of Delia DeSantis, Carmen Laurenza Ziolkowski, Sam Migliore, Paolo M. Fiorentino, Arianna Fognani, Jerre Mangione, Enzo Farinella, Donna L. Gestri, Luigi Capuana, Piera Carroli, Daniela Gioseffi, Kenneth Steven, Rosario Sollami, Gaetano Rando, Marco Lo Verso, Venera Fazio, Anthony Buccino, Maria Fama, Kathleen Gerard, Theresa M. Carilli, Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Louisa Galio, Margaret Dorazio-Migliore.
The subjects tackled are complex as well: ethnicity, immigration, festivals, customs, history, family, honor etc.
