I think it’s a disgrace that the online bookselling behemoth known as Amazon.com does not have a separate category for Italian American literature. They have one for several other ethnic groups. Don’t we Italian American authors deserve to have our own category for the thousands of titles by hundreds of important authors of Italian descent? Authors such as Don DeLill, Gay Talese, David Baldacci, Adriana Trigani, Daniela Gioseffi, Mario Puzo, John Fante, W. S. Piero, and John Ciardi, to name but a few, have contributed immeasurably to mainstream American culture, but there are an abundance of others such as myself who are much lesser known but nevertheless among the authentic voices of our subculture.
Therefore, I have given a modest launch to a letter-writing/email-message campaign by starting a Facebook page for those who support this cause. Here’s the link
