Angela's book is available at good booksellers
Valentino Di Sciascio can no longer describe his past or his culture, and his family's heritage may be lost to the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. Deciding not to let his story fade, his daughter Angela travels the length and breadth of the Italian boot, absorbing the culture of her father and experiencing the chaos, beauty, style and deliciousness that is Italy today.
Basing herself with relatives in Abruzzo, she spends a year travelling around the country, discovering the language, culture and cuisine of her heritage. Meal by meal at her father's family table and step by step through the Italian countryside, she slowly comes to understand the young Valentino who left for the new world.
