“...a book to give everyone on your list: turning each page is like opening a series of small

                        Maria Gloria, L’Italo Americano

Esty: A Novel/Memoir           
                Sanniti Publications, 2012. 

               $16.95 plus tax (if applicable) and shipping

Lawrence DiStasi's Esty is a brilliant work--a gripping family saga, an exloration of his past and heritage that is so fascinating and layerred it is difficult to put down. Paritially written in his mother's own voice and partially in the voice of her writer son, DiStasi's book tries to piece together a past that is elusive and that upends his previous perceptions...a beautifully nuanced book that is not to be missed. 
             Maria Mazziotti Gillan, poet winner of the American Book Award.
