Praise for Tony Romano’s previous work
“Romano is a careful and evocative writer who takes time with his descriptions to give his fictional world depth and texture
…a most-accomplished first novel, rich in characterization, setting and psychological acuity.”—Chicago Tribune
“[This novel] refuses to sentimentalize the Italian immigrant life that it explores. It pulls you deeper and deeper into this life
through a series of wonderfully disturbing surprises that will make your heart ache.”—Robert Hellenga, author of The Sixteen Pleasures
“The overwhelming themes of love, loss, grief, struggle and isolation are expressed in unsentimental and sometimes even desperate prose.
Dreams, and the failure to reach those dreams, choices, risks and settling (or not settling) permeate this moving collection of tales
that will stay with the reader long after the book is shut.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
