    1. low-key great novel of italian-american immigrants to cleveland, centering around fabrizze, a big joyful and competent dude. very simple story, very gracefully executed. feels a little old-fashioned now, not least because it was deliberately old-fashioned in 1959. there's a quaintness and almost a self-parodic aspect to the performance of ethnicity here. mostly dug the weird, choral, overlapping dialogue style -- prose version of robert altman movies where there are three conversations going on [...]
