Chiara Mazzucchelli is Assistant Professor of Italian Studies at the University of Central Florida.Review:
“In this ground-breaking critical study on Sicilian American literature, Chiara Mazzucchelli renders a brilliant analysis on the presence of sicilianamericanità in contemporary literature ... The Heart and the Island is an essential addition to Italian American studies, one that will continue to provoke new investigations and interdisciplinary discussions on Sicilian American literature ... Mazzucchelli’s work is captivating and deeply informative for readers outside of academia ... [she] is a brilliant, soulful critic.” ― Sicilia Press
“The Heart and the Island makes a distinctive contribution to the field of Italian American studies, provocatively extending it as well as continuing the invaluable work of providing reflection on a variety of narratives distinguished by generic innovation and distinctive responses to sicilianità. Chiara Mazzucchelli has beautifully advanced the field, interweaving with skill and poise the voices of Sicilian and Sicilian American writers.” ― Mary Jo Bona, author of By the Breath of Their Mouths: Narratives of Resistance in Italian America
