Tribute to Women: "La Vita E’ Triste, Ma Pure Bella": Newly Published Book by Outskirts Press

Aug 12 2013, 1:08pm CDT | by PR.com

Novella of memoirs written as a tribute to the greatness of women and mothers around the world.

Brick, NJ, August 12, 2013 –(PR.com)– Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated biography and personal memoir from Brick, NJ, author Mary R. Pagano.

Outskirts Press, Inc. has published “La Vita E’ Triste, Ma Pure Bella: Life Is Difficult, But Also Beautiful” by Mary R. Pagano. The author’s most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the biography and personal memoirs category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/lavitatriste was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication. The author’s Website is http://www.maryrpagano.com.

The Fig Tree, which symbolizes fertility and heritage with its uniquely deep roots, dates back to Adam and Eve and the Roman Empire. In Italy, fig trees are highly revered. It is the symbol of heritage represented by this sacred tree that the author wishes the reader to focus on.

The reader is invited to take an unforgettable trip through the life of an amazing Italian woman who came to America to find buona fortuna (good fortune). This story will take the reader on Maria’s journey from rags to riches and then from riches to rags. Maria’s life, although it began with sadness, followed a winding road that took her to a strange land through the gates of Ellis Island, where she learned a little about prejudice and a lot about courage, strength, perseverance and love. These years also covered some political history of Italy during the time when Benito Mussolini was a rising star. Maria and her brothers were very lucky to have left Italy just before Mussolini’s liaison with Adolf Hitler, and just before the arrival of the Nazis.

Maria’s first American residence was in the little town of Madison, New Jersey, where she met and married Pellegrino Marra. The reader will travel with Maria from Madison, New Jersey to a section of Newark, New Jersey, known as “Newark’s Little Italy.” Newark’s Little Italy proved to be an Italian-based city with many unique commodities and denizens. For example, there were some interesting characters that walked the streets of Newark selling fresh goods. This was a city where the locals had the ability to buy fresh tripe and fresh lamb’s head from a man known as “U Trippaiole.” Two other street peddlers were “U Pizzaiole,” who pushed a cart carrying the best home-made pizza. The next peddler, riding a horse and carriage, delivered the most delicious baked sweet potatoes and roasted chestnuts. He was known as “U Fumo.” Finally, the colorful grocery store of “Spezzafero” offered fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, along with Spezzafero’s talking parrot, Cheech, who spoke fluent Italian and had no problem cursing at customers who came in and thieves who attempted to steal!

The reader will be delighted to read about the different restaurants that provided excellent Italian cuisine to some very famous stars such as Jimmy Durante, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Jackie Gleason, Enrico Caruso, Abbot & Costello, Rocky Marchiano and others. Other noteworthy patrons were Al Capone, Lucky Luciano and many others. Another famous person who grew from the streets of Newark is Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, who would later be known to the world as “Mother Cabrini.”

Readers will have the good fortune of meeting many humorous characters, some of whom Maria acquired after coming to America. These characters range from Maria’s husband, children, her siblings, aunts, uncles, in-laws, family friends, a murderer and a promiscuous woman! It is through the various personalities of these characters that Maria’s many attributes will become visible. Maria shouts out to life that whatever hardships one may endeavor along the way, the true essence of it all is that these hardships will season one to help you love more and more strongly. Her entire life journey will bring tears of laughter and sorrow to many readers. All in all, the story lives true to its title, “Life is difficult, but also beautiful!”

Maria’s story is truly a tribute to the greatness of women and mothers.

“Thank you for reading my book!” says author, Mary Rose Pagano.
