Over Bridges Across Tables, a collection of vibrant stories, captures the beauty and magic of the Venetian Lagoon. It's a memoir about Anna Marchini and her family, and the charm and challenges of growing up in the early 60's on the island of Murano within the glass-blowers' community, where life is played out and memories are built on cobblestone streets, over many bridges and across kitchen tables. Anna's father, Nico, teaches his values to his six children while he encourages them to have dreams, build good memories and savor the simple things in life. The stories convey the essence of life through Anna's memories, as Anna, now an adult living in the United States, struggles to understand the complexity of cultural identity and the joy and frailty of human experiences.
