Shucking Capers

Small Stories from a Big Island

ByMaria Teresa Agozzino

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This warm-hearted fusion of autobiography and ethnography brings to life in vivid detail Sicily’s peculiar truce between the old ways and the new. Written with respect and a touch of humour, the author shares her observations through infant eyes and into womanhood, as she reflects on visiting her transnational family and the serendipitous encounters along the way. Weaving personal narratives, folklore, linguistics and history, cultural codes and conventions are revealed that may surprise and inform the reader. It is a book about heritage and worldview, about celebrating other voices, about reclaiming identity.
