In the years since that anthology was published, a new and fresh generation of Italian Canadian writers have emerged and have left a further, indelible mark on Canadian literature. Many of the new names have won major prizes, both nationally and internationally, and have become the new 'stars' of Canadian and international literature. It is time for a new selection and a new anthology! This revised volume of Italian Canadian Voices includes short stories, excerpts from longer prose works, and poetry. It covers the 'first voices' of Italian Canadian literature, the familiar and well-established voices and, to the credit of the Editor, there are a significant number of new 'voices' represented in this volume. In this new Italian Canadian Voices you will find Pier Giorgio Di Cicco, Ni Ricci, George Amabile, Mary Di Michele, Len Gasparini, Alexandre Amprimoz, Caterina Edwards, Darlene Madott, Antoni Mazza, Carmine Starni, Joseph Maviglia and many others. Each writer has already or is the process of leaving his or her unique voice and signature on the evolution of Canadian and international literature.
