October Book of the Month
Sometimes I Swear In Italian
Antonio Buccino's collection about growing up Italian American in New Jersey and discovering the roots of his ancestors takes him back through the old neighborhood where the 'bianca lina' man sold bleach to make the white linens; and the young boy growing up in the house his grandfather built, and living upstairs from his scary grandma who spoke no English.
The collection of verse captures the assimilation of Italian American born and raised in New Jersey and inspired by a trip to Italy where he realizes on his first visit, it also is his home.
This American boy discovers the land his ancestors left to make a better life for his generation. The pigeons that follow him throughout Italy provide the connection to his father - who raised homers - who didn't speak English until he started school - the rich heritage of the old country, and the enormous sacrifice of his grandparents.
Despite its title, Sometimes I Swear In Italian contains no profanity in any language.
I’m thankful for growing up in old Belleville. New Jersey, that is, not Belleville, Ontario, or Belleville, Illinois, or Belleville, Michigan, or Belleville, Kansas or even Belleville, Paris. I’m thankful for growing up in good old Belleville, New Jersey.
