After sailing back and forth between Italy and America, an unscrupulous "bird of passage" named Tommaso Caruso - or Thomas, as he prefers to be called - disappears Someplace Out West as World War II erupts in Europe. After the war ends and there's still no sign of him, his wife ships their son Tommy off to the New World to track him down. For Tommy, what begins as a simple mission evolves into a wild journey of discovery as he and mid-20th Century America collide in The Grand Junction.

About the Author:

Joe Costanzo is an award-winning journalist who covered some of the biggest news stories in the Intermountain West. A Calabrian immigrant, he is the author of two previous novels that explore the Italian-American experience from an unconventional literary perspective: Graphic Times and Restoration.

Review:

"This post-World War II escapade is a classic migrant tale that packs in mystery and adventure as it takes readers from Italy to New York to the American West. In The Grand Junction, an intriguing novel loaded with 1950s realism, Joe Costanzo exposes the deceit and corruption entrenched in the human desperation to succeed." - ForeWord Clarion Reviews

"The Grand Junction is uproariously conniving to the very end. Highly recommended." - Midwest Book Review

"Costanzo (Restoration, 2014, etc.) presents his readers with a lush, literary portrait of family and culture across America after the second world war . . . Short and sweet, a mosaic of people, places and culture well worth knowing." - Kirkus Indie Reviews

"This fun, fast-paced tale tracks a contemporary immigrant story across a familiar American postwar landscape. Costanzo's knowledge of Italian culture and Italian-American immigrant experiences immediately lends an air of authenticity and charm, and makes the reader quick to accept the improbable direction the story takes when the smuggling and government conspiracies are introduced." - Publishers Weekly - BookLife
