Author Vincent Panella
What's come of it is his new book, Lost Hearts, a series of vignettes tracing native Sicilians from the homeland all the way through to the sticky, melting-pot streets of mid-century New York. The stories are fictional but the experience -- first blush of a hardscrabble life in the New World -- is real. We talk with Vincent Panella today about his new stories.
