Mama Mia!

Italian Without Words
Cangelosi and Carpini
1989

On the suggestion of someone (I can’t remember who), I ordered this book in ILL and cracked up on just about every picture. Is this any good? Is it humor? Is it language instruction? Is it two Italian men making fun of their immigrant parents? I don’t know and I don’t really care. The chapters include Insults, Love and Romance, Threats, Food, etc.  I did laugh at every picture and tried all the threats out loud.

Is it a weeder? The book is old and dated looking, not to mention rough around the edges, so maybe on condition. Otherwise, it was a good time and a quick diversion. Your mileage may vary.

Ciao!

Mary
