Literary Nonfiction. Italian Studies. Rita Watson's memories of family, traditions, and community reveal what truly nourishes people. At the heart of this book is a wise and gentle grandmother who savored life and taught others how to live with compassion and grace.--Olivia Kate Cerrone

These stories will hit a familiar chord whether or not you are Italian. Each makes you want to hurry to the next. Wait. Take time to savor the richness and warmth of each. Then read the how-to steps and write your own family memoir.--Ed Iannuccilli

European grandmothers share important traits, a love of cooking and a love of family. I'm Armenian and yet, I see my own grandmothers as I read through stories which capture our heritage.--Stephen Kurkjian

Reading ITALIAN KISSES as columns gave me a sense of the customs and culture of grandparents from 'the old country.' Now reading these in book form, along with photos and recipes, I feel a part of their rich heritage.--Dr. Mary-Lou Pardue.
