Now That We Know Who We Are



108 Pages


Now That We Know Who We Are is a debut collection of poems that charts the emergence of a writer through memories of growing up in the 1950s and 60s as the child of Italian immigrants. The poems recall a house fire, first love, a brother’s passion for hockey, a pact made with as sister — all moments when curiosity, defiance, and desire for truth surfaced.

The collection explores, in language that is at once sharp and tender, threads of forgiveness and understanding which eventually make love more possible. The poems are short narratives, written in a voice that scratches the hard edges of immigration, identity, displacement, prejudice, family relationships, and loneliness.
