Reviews

"Trigiani is a master of palpable and visual detail."--Washington Post
"If you're meeting her work for the first time, get ready for a lifelong love affair."--Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help
Praise for Adriana Trigiani: "A comedy writer with a heart of gold"--New York Times
"Delightful, energetic.... Trigiani is a seemingly effortless storyteller."--Boston Globe

Praise for Kiss Carlo "For Adri-addicts and newcomers alike, Kiss Carlo is a delightfully retro read from novelist Adriana Trigiani, best-selling author of The Shoemaker's Wife. Carlo is a sprawling story that stretches from Italy to Philadelphia and New York to interweave the lives of hard-working Italian families making a living in the years after World War II. . . . Nicky and Calla's chemistry is crackling; they don't talk so much as banter. The path they must travel to each other's side is winding but rewarding, mostly because of the characters they meet along the way. . . . At a time when crass seems to trump class in popular culture, Kiss Carlo may be just what we need, a warmhearted romp that's a welcome escape from novels about girls who are gone/on a train/tattooed. Kiss Carlo is set in a world where people don't eat pasta, they eat macaroni, and the secret isn't in the sauce but in the gravy. Now that's Italian--and an incredibly satisfying dish to dig into. Three and a half out of four stars."--USA Today
"If you are looking for a page turner this summer, pick up Adriana Trigiani's Kiss Carlo. . . I look forward to every new book by Adriana Trigiani. She is not only delightful in person, but her books are a joy to read. That includes her latest novel Kiss Carlo, this month's book buyer pick. . .The sweeping multigenerational story effortlessly transports readers from Italy to the streets of South Philly to New York City, while the characters explore the ties that bind, tradition, wanting more from life, Shakespeare and much more. As they examine what they want for themselves, they also celebrate love, hope and family. . . Best of all? Trigiani tells this story with her trademark wit and joie de vivre." --The Costco Connection
"Using motifs and themes from the Bard, Kiss Carlo is an epic novel about family, secrets, and pursuing your dreams."--Popsugar
"Accompanying Nicky on his journey of self-discovery is worth the trip."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"A world of warm, lively characters whose charming idiosyncrasies lead them to collide and ricochet along the way to love.... A delightfully sprawling comedy full of extended families."--Kirkus Reviews
Trigiani's boisterous, maddening, devoted Italian clan will have you wishing they'd adopt you too."--People
"An important story that goes beyond the meaning of family to the deeper question of what it means to have a life well-lived."--The Mountain Times
