    This is wonderful collection of stories about Sal’s experiences in Italy. Reading the works, one feels swept away to a beautiful country filled with people involved in life, love, and hard work. This book must be read with a hot cup of coffee and a box of tissues. Sal’s magic will work wonders on your heart, as he always does mine.

    Salvatore Buttaci has included the heartwrenching and the humorous, and steals the heart with both. Well done!

    "READ WHAT SICILIANS REALLY ARE ALL ABOUT" I wrote this book because I got tired of all the adverse publicity that the media heaps on Sicilians, Sicilian Americans, Italians, and Italian Americans. The media project this ethnicity as corrupt, violent, stupid, and downright frightening, all of which may be true for an infinitessimal percentage of us, those mobsters who continue to give the rest of us a bad rep. Buy the book. It makes a great Christmas gift. Learn once and for all what Sicilians really are all about. And if you're Sicilian, here's something to make you proud. Salvatore Buttaci author of A Family of Sicilians...

    "A Family of Sicilians: Stories & Poems" Join Sicilian-American Salvatore Buttaci on a journey to the "old country" to explore his roots. Follow him, arriving with little knowledge of the language, as he tries to use public transportation and overdoses on expresso in an effort to be polite. Meet his rediscovered family with their traditions of faith, pride, respect, and colorful nicknames that distinguish the dozens of individuals with the same handful of given names. Meet his fictional Sicilians, too. There's the young boy who falls into a mine shaft and awakens as a man as Mussolini is rising; a clever lawyer in a murder trial; even an odd guest on a Jay Leno show. You don't have to be Sicilian to appreciate Buttaci's warm and sometimes bittersweet memoirs, poems and short stories.

    His stories flow well and are sprinkled with humor. There's a few sad ones. Two scenes are like scenes out of my life, so I relate to those. Other scenes are nothing like my life, so they broaden my horizons. By Christy Duvall

    "Truly Amazing " Salvatore Buttaci is one of the great american poets that inspires me daily to keep writing. His words flow like water and some how you can't help but carry his poetry and writings with you. No one should pass up the chance to own any of his wonderful collections of poetry and stories. Generations to come will thank you for introducing such an amazing writer into their lives.
