Giacomo Giammatteoabout this book: Finding Family is not as much a mystery as a coming-of-age story, and it reflects what life was like for some of the Italian immigrants coming to America after WWII. New York was the destination for many of them, and the streets were not "paved with gold," as they were led to believe. Dominic Mangini was 8 years old when his parents set out for New York. He was a "good boy" who loved family, but things changed in America, and he was forced to find a new family, one that was not so loving.
• Giacomo Giammatteo has written a vivid tale of life in the streets for a Sicilian immigrant in New York in the 1960s. Finding Family is a page-turner with plenty of action, but plenty of deep feeling as well. Thrilling, heartbreaking and realistic. — Readers' Favorites
• I enjoyed learning about what Italian immigrant's had to go through to get to America and now wish I had asked more questions of my grandparents. Thank you Giacomo for writing this novella which helped us understand both your characters and also my past. — Vincent, Amazon reviewer
