I saw that you were discussing the Fordham University Press title on Louise DeSalvo. I am posting information about the book below for those that are interested and offering a discount to VWOOLF subscribers.
Personal Effects Essays on Memoir, Teaching, andCulture in the Work of Louise DeSalvo Edited by NancyCaronia and Edvige Giunta    "A veryimportant contribution in the field of Italian American studies, ethnicstudies, cultural studies, feminist studies, literary studies in general, andstudies on the memoir in particular. PersonalEffects explores Louise DeSalvo's work as a memoir writer, teacher, andscholar, illustrating the contribution Italian American authors can give bothto Italian culture and to American culture and literature." —CaterinaRomeo, Sapienza Universita di Roma    "Personal Effects is a significantcontribution to DeSalvo scholarship. It is a stunning example of the power ofblending literary and cultural criticism with creative nonfiction."—Roseanne Giannini Quinn, DeAnza College    "Wide-ranging,sophisticated,and stylish, PersonalEffects is both a brilliant tribute to a powerful scholar-memoirist and asignificant contribution to Italian-American studies and cultural studies moregenerally. It is a collection to savor!"—Sandra Mortola Gilbert, author ofThe Culinary Imagination    Celebrating one ofthe most important Italian American female authors of our time, Personal Effects offers a lucid view ofLouise DeSalvo as a writer who has produced a vast and provocative body ofmemoir writing, a scholar who has enriched our understanding of Virginia Woolf,and a teacher who has transformed countless lives. More than an anthology, Personal Effects represents an authorcase study and an example for modern Italian American interdisciplinaryscholarship.    Personal Effects examines DeSalvo'smemoirs as works that push the boundaries of the most controversial genre ofthe past few decades. In these works, the author fearlessly explores issuessuch as immigration, domesticity, war, adultery, illness, mental health,sexuality, the environment, and trauma through the lens of gender, ethnic, andworking-class identity. Alongside her groundbreaking scholarship, DeSalvo'smemoirs attest to the power and influence of this feminist Italian Americanwriter.
