Part memoir, part social commentary, and part literary criticism, Chiaroscuro is not only profoundly original but also of crucial importrance in establishing the contours of an Italian American tradition. Spanning a quarter century of work, these essays by Helen Barolini explore her personal search, literature as a formative influence, and the turning of the personal into the political. Includes an Index.
