Praise for Story of My People

"A short memoir of great charm, for all its sadness a pleasure to read...Nesi's musings are as finely woven as his textiles." --New York Times

"An intimate account of a homespun world, 'glistening and weightless like silk, ' destroyed by rapid globalization...In gleefully biting prose, Nesi excoriates Italy's politicians, its arrogant economists, and the 'titanic foreign multinationals.'" --The New Yorker

"At once a memoir, a requiem, and a work of social and literary criticism...beautifully written." --Bookforum
