This collection of writings by Italian-American women began my love affair of Italian-American literature. Fifty-six authors are represented here by fiction, poetry, drama, essays, memoirs and other non-fiction. Barolini's introduction to this anthology is powerful, affirming the contributions of Ethnic female writers. Each work is presented with brief introduction of the author that mentions her other works. A highly-recommended collection of literature.
