 I am reviewing a copy of American English, Italian Chocolate through University of Nebraska Press and Netgalley:  
This book takes us on a journey in essays from the American  Midwest where we get a glimpse into the life of a young boy, from Sunday afternoon car rides to Cook outs.  At twelve he nearly has to attend boy scout camp but gets ringworm.

The essays deal with the coming of age story of the young boy, now adult.  It deals with everything from first kisses to horseback riding.

The book blends in both his childhood and afterword, when he is married.

He talks about working at his Father’s gas station when he was in high school.

In 1971 when he was in College pursuing a degree in public accounting one day he was driving his Volkswagen when a van hit him.  He woke up in the hospital in traction.  He stayed in the hospital for three weeks.

He goes on to talk about heart breaks.

In May 1974, at the age of twenty one he visits England for cultural enrichment.

He goes on to talk about visiting Italy shortly after he is married for the first time.

I give American English, Italian Chocolate five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
