Brooklyn Birth: Sicilian Soul consists of the poet's award winning and published poetry. It follows his life from a child in Brooklyn to teaching days, marriage, fatherhood, and grand parenting. The poetry presents a verbal canvas of his days spent on commercial boats, to late night stickball games on steamy streets, savory spaghetti Sundays surrounded by foods and family. The book details the discovery of his one romantic love, breathtaking exciting births of children and grandchildren, tells of lessons learned, countless students taught, and honors Vietnam heroes. It captures the wondrous journey of a humble writer. author_bio: F. Anthony D'Alessandro was associate editor of the defunct Halo-American Times.
