Praise for We Are Family

"Fabio Bartolomei's We Are Family is an extended, guffaw-inducing, and sometimes tragic trip through Al's young life. It reads like an Italian sitcom."--Forward Reviews

"We are Family proves the ability of the author to create a plot shot through with the richness of Italian comedy and bright irony." --Silvana Mazzocchi, La Repubblica

"An amazing novel: it'll move you and make you laugh." --Cristina De Stefano, Elle

Praise for Alfa Romeo 1300 and Other Miracles

"An entertaining and humorous debut." --La Repubblica

"A melancholy yet hopeful fable told with a smile." --Internazionale

"Bartolomei's style is swift and immensely readable." --Flaneri

"Alfa Romeo 1300 and Other Miracles left the kind of smile on my face that doesn't go unnoticed and which people often mistake for a kind of facial paralysis...Bartolomei is attentive to the proper rhythm of a story, the proper way to reveal plot, to what is and is not the right word in the right place, all of which produced exactly the right effect on this reader." --Valentina Aversano, Setteperuno
