Cover Image For Fake Italian by Marc DiPaolo

Fake Italian by Marc DiPaolo


Fiction. Italian & Italian American Studies. New York, 1987: In a city torn apart by racial tension, Damien Cavalieri is an adolescent without a tribe. His mother --who pines for the 1950s Brooklyn Italian community she grew up in --fears he lacks commitment to his heritage. Damien's fellow Staten Islanders agree, dubbing him a "fake Italian" and bullying him for being artistic. Complicating matters, his efforts to make friends and date girls outside of the Italian community are thwarted time and again by circumstances beyond his control. When a tragic accident shakes Damien to his core, he begins a journey of self-discovery that will lead him to Italy, where he will learn, once and for all, who he really is.
