Against all odds -- a new language, new customs, and prejudice -- Italian Americans (IA) built a new life in “Lamerica,” the land of success. This book brings us to the heart of the IA immigrant experience through diaries, letters, interviews, newspaper articles, and period photos. Getting through immigration, finding a steady job and respectable place to live, and learning the “American way” of doing things were a challenge. Many IA bonded together, creating communities in which family loyalty prevailed. Through the stories of IA such as writer Gay Talese, entertainer Tony Bennett, and baseball great Yogi Berra we see how ties to the old country survived. We also meet unknown Italians, whose sorrows and joys, laughter and pain are moving.
