Using semiotics as a theoretical foundation, this book reexamines the notion of the hyphenate writer. It argues for an analogous set of categories no longer chronologically or generationally based, but cognitively based, so that the traditionally considered "first-stage" or first generation hyphenate writer now figures as an "expressive" writer who is not necessarily part of the immigrant or first American-born generations. He or she may actually belong to a later generation and write about his or her ethnicity with those characteristics more readily associated with the first-stage hyphenate writer.

Review:

Tamburri makes crucial connections among the various generations of Italian/American writers, that, while rooted in the most authoritative scholarship, also provoke us to look forward as to how we might see Italian/American literature in the future. Tamburri s work opens doors to an understanding of Italian/American literature that university students and other students in the field should pass through. Justin Vitiello, Temple University
This book brings to our literary attention writers not often discussed, and it considers them within the larger domain of ethnic subcultures in relation to a dominant American culture. Joseph Natoli, author of Speeding to the Millennium: Film and Culture 1993-1995"
