Fig Season by Joan Bauer




In Fig Season, the poet Joan E. Bauer explores what it has meant to her to be Italian American. She mingles stories about her own quirky family with portraits of Fellini, Frank Zappa, Diane di Prima, Pasolini, Enrico Fermi, Anna Magnani, John Fante, Elsa Schiaparelli, and more. In writing about history, culture, and family, Bauer also shares what, over time, she has learned about love and vanity, courage and forgiveness. Price includes tax & shipping.
