Summary
Relying on a multiplicity of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives, scholars and creative non-fiction writers offer a lucid view of DeSalvo as a writer who has produced one of the largest and most provocative bodies of memoir writing in contemporary US literature, a scholar who has enriched our understanding of Virginia Woolf, and a teacher who has transformed countless lives. More than an anthology, this collection represents a case study that serves as an intervention and example for Italian American interdisciplinary scholarship in the twenty-first century
