Author Peter Pezzelli rivals Adriana Trigiani for the ability to craft warm humorous tales about Italian-American families. In Francesca’s Kitchen, the title character was the queen of her kitchen, dispensing garlic and advice as liberally. Recently widowed, she hires on as an au pair with a yuppie mother. “Good pasta and traditional family values conquer all in this amusing and touching story” (Library Journal). In Home to Italy, Pezzelli writes about a widower who shocks his family returning to San Giuseppe, the Italian village where he spent his childhood. He settles in with his childhood friend Lucca, and his tempestuous daughter Lucrezia. You can guess where this is headed.
