A Circular Journey

Helen Barolini

A Fordham University Press Publication

Novelist, critic, pioneer voice in Italian-American literature, Helen Barolini has tracked the intersections of ethnicidentity, generations, and art in a remarkable body of work.Here, she brings together essays both personal and critical in a revealing self-portrait-from her youth in an Italian immigrant home in upstate New York to a life at home and abroad in two cultures. From its title essay-a classic chronicle of rediscovering a culture-to explorations of Italy as a creative springboard, this book is a circling of both worlds as they touched and merged in her journey.
