About the Book

Growing Up Italian-Australian is a collection of funny tales that has no qualms about parodying my Nonni, my childhood, Sicilian morals, and archaic Sicilian traditions in contemporary Australian society. These comical parodies are dedicated to my Nonna who turned ninety and to the memory of my Nonno.

About the Author

As a young Australian girl, I was raised on Italian-Sicilian archaic principals in the 1980s. New social and technological trends emerged in the eighties that impacted on the Italo-Australian culture that has redefined the position and public perception of Italians in Australia.
