AUTHOR

Laurino, Maria

SUMMARY

Maria Laurino sifts through the stereotypes bedeviling Italian Americans to deliver a penetrating and hilarious examination of third-generation ethnic identity. With "intelligence and honesty" ( Arizona Republic ), she writes about guidos, bimbettes, and mammoni (mama's boys in Italy); examines the clashing aesthetics of Giorgio Armani and Gianni Versace; and unravels the etymology of southern Italian dialect words like gavone and bubidabetz . According to Frances Mayes, she navigates the conflicting forces of ethnicity "with humor and wisdom."Laurino, Maria is the author of 'Were You Always an Italian Ancestors and Other Icons of Italian America' with ISBN 9780393321951 and ISBN 0393321959.
