Literary Nonfiction. Edited by Dennis Barone and Peter Covino, this volume collects and expands on many of the ideas explored during the widely influential Italian American Discussion Group of the Modern Language Association, in existence ten-plus years. Scholarly writing about Italian American literature and culture has arguably entered its second fully and critically engaged decade of sustained conversation and inquiry. This collection of essays endeavors to highlight the vitality of these inquiries and offer suggestions for continuing research and enjoyment.
