In The Story of My People, Mario Mignone gives eloquent testimony to the hopes, fears, struggles and ultimate triumph of his family's extraordinary journey from rural Italy to the American Dream. He also gives a poignant voice to the millions of other immigrants who left the Mezzogiorno for L'America. In the process, he shows how to perform the critical balancing act of embracing the future while preserving the past.
- Stanislao G. Pugliese, Queensboro UNICO Distinguished Professor of Italian, Hofstra University
