About this item

Fiction. At the beginning of the 20th century, as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein were on the rise to prominence, sealing America's literary status around the world, a crop of writers began to publish and offer insight into the often overlooked and disregarded corners of society. Labeled ethnic or immigrant, their work was marginalized, relegated to limited audiences where it would remain available to minimal exposure or otherwise lost to history and the passage of time.

With our re-publication of MISS ROLLINS IN LOVE, we hope to rescue one such title from the bottomless pit of history. Garibaldi LaPolla along with Pietro di Donato and John Fante form the canon of the great Italian American novelists from the era. And in this novel, he tells the story of a young teacher, Amy Rollins, her orphan student, Donato Contini, and the complexities of the education system, teacher-student relationships, and the implications of romance and passion in the classroom.
