«I Have Found My Voice»

The Italian-American Woman Writer


Mary Frances Pipino

« I Have Found My Voice» explores the literary traditions of Italian-American women novelists. Beginning with a consideration of the autobiographical roots of Italian-American fiction, Dr. Pipino examines the work of seven contemporary writers. She analyzes their voices: how they speak about their culture; their histories as women; and as members of an ethnic community – a community long assumed to lack an identifiable literary tradition.
