Item description for More Coffee With Nonna: Stories of My Italian Grandmother by Vincent Iezzi...

Overview
Sometimes an oasis of peace with vigil candles flickering constantly in silent prayer for all in harm's way and sometimes a scene of bedlam with a dozen live crabs escaping from the grocery bag and dashing for the living room, Nonna's house was home to many hearts. Readers are invited to come to her table now and join in the laughter, wisdom, and warmth of family and friends.

Publishers Description
"Buon appetito Mangia bene "
Welcome to Nonna's kitchen where good food, good stories and an Italian grandmother's straight-from-the-heart advice are available to all who wander in.
During World War II, little Vincent Iezzi wandered in constantly to pull up a chair and satisfy his heart, soul and stomach at his grandmother Nonna's table. Vincent's father was away with the troops and his mother worked, but Nonna was always on the spot with a funny story, an encouraging tale, a cup of coffee and a plate of biscotti.
Nonna's South Philadelphia neighborhood was a slice of Italy, and her house, crowded with aunts, uncles and cousins, was a little village. Sometimes an oasis of peace with vigil candles flickering constantly in silent prayer for all in harm's way and sometimes a scene of bedlam with a dozen live crabs escaping from the grocery bag and dashing for the living room, Nonna's house was home to many hearts.
Come to her table now and join in the laughter, wisdom and warmth of family and friends.

Reviews - What do customers think about More Coffee With Nonna: Stories of My Italian Grandmother?

Not what I expected - a little too religious  Jul 10, 2007
After reading the description of this book, I thought there would be more stories about growing up in an Italian household with an Italian Nonna. Instead, every word Nonna says has a religious connotation. It was disappointing.
 
A Wonderful Book!!  Jul 5, 2007
What I liked the most about this book was the beautiful relationship that Vincent Iezzi had with his Nonna. It reminded me so very much of my Italian family and upbringing, and the closeness that I was blessed to share with my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

I liked that his Nonna's stories always brought God into them, and morality was of utmost importance. It most definitely can be used as a communication tool in family life.

It is a great book for both the young and old. Cannot keep this book to yourself, as it must be shared. I have already lent my copy to one of my daughters, and will continue to share it. It will definitely be on my Christmas gift-giving list.
 
Great Short Stories  Jan 31, 2006
This book is filled with delightful short stories of a boy and his Italian grandmother. What a wonderful age to have grown up in.
 
Entertaining, but not what I expected  Jan 19, 2006
This is an entertaining book, but somehow I thought the stories would be about families, and the times that came before.
 
A Window to the Past  Sep 8, 2005
Nonna is Domenica Maria D'Amore, the author's maternal grandmother and matriarch of a large Italian family. In the opening chapter, she is described as a woman of customs and traditions, one who pushed the limits of kindness to include thoughtfulness, consideration, concern, gentleness, respectfulness, politeness, and more. In the final chapter, reflecting on Nonna's death from cancer at age 58, Iezzi proclaims her to be one of the most important people in his life. A composition he wrote at that time called her "the best grandmother and the smartest storyteller in the whole world" who knew "everything in life and knew the stories of all the great people and saints that ever lived in the world." The intervening chapters are filled with anecdotes involving a variety of events and individuals that provide insight into this family as well as an earlier culture.
