I m done with this book It s boring Really really boring I m halfway through and the Big Mystery has been revealed I can only assume the rest of the book is about the author building her life in New York while bursting into tears every 2 pages I feel bad that I don t like it since it s her actual life but this really would have made a better magazine article than a 400 page memoir

This is not a book for people who look to the Godfather and the Sopranos for cultural insight into Italian Americans Instead this is a very well thought out book about a daughter coming to terms with her imperfect parents largely after their deaths By piecing together family conversations and through her own research Jennifer Mascia is able to understand her parents simply as adults rather than as her own mother and father A major strength Mascia explains her grief at both parents deaths better than I ve read in some self help books on grieving Mascia puts forth in the prologue a scenario she says she wishes were true both parents alive and healthy her Jewish mother cooking a huge Sunday dinner for her Italian father and herself all the while engaging in light hearted ribbing Thus she sets forth the point of the book as she says herself the past is in the past Rather than feeling betrayed by the life her parents led and ultimately led her through Mascia comes to terms with their choicesAs for weaknesses the only one I d even consider is that Mascia seemed to have a bit of a problem wrapping the story up by this I mean there were a few pages I skipped in the last chapter The writing throughout is evocative and meaty with emotions resting on the surface But I don t want to portray this as a heavy weepy tome about the sins of the father Sure there are some frank portrayals of disfunctional family life but Mascia interlaces these brilliantly with conversations with friends in which she deconstructs her family s actions We as readers are brought into Mascia s thought process It s a very intimate book for sure Mascia also does a brilliant job of making dark situations seem light while refusing to sugar coat any of her parents actions whether criminal or simply mean spirited Overall a very good read and a uick one at that Finally I m not hiding the review for spoilers because the point of the book isn t that her parents die it s that she learns to understand how they lived
