An American Life in Italy
Mother Tongue
  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Wallis Wilde-Menozzi
  • Over 370 pages
  • First Edition, 1997
  • Copyright © 1997 by Wallis Wilde-Menozzi
" Mother Tongue is a memoir of extraordinary richness and honesty.
As it contemplates the life of a young American writer who joins her
Italian husband in Parma, it steadily draws in a bounty of startling and
finally consoling news from a dauntless new life in a very old place.
- REYNOLDS PRICE "
" This book is a larger, beautiful window into the intelligent, literate,
reflective life of Italy - intimately lived and observed by a modern American
woman. A wise and delightful work, admirable in its synthesis of
understanding, independence, and rare humility.
- SHIRLEY HAZZARD "

" Fourteen years ago, the American writer Wallis Wilde-Menozzi moved with her husband and daughter to Parma, a prosperous city in northern Italy.
Searching for a way to find a place within a city that has existed since Roman times, she conducted a highly personal investigation of the often baffling, closed way of life she encountered. "

" Mother Tongue explores Parma, largely through the lives of its women, some historical figures - Giuseppe Verdi, Correggio, the Renaissance badessa Giovanna Piacenza - and other extraordinary individuals. "

" It is also a remarkable, probing evocation of an American life that has been tried and tempered by two very different societies.
No other book evokes so poignantly and profoundly the role of food, faith, and family attachment in Italian life and, by reflection, in our own. "
