Ciao, Baby is Gianna Patriarca's third book of poetry. She takes us on her continuing journey of discovery through memory, landscape, love, pain and mortality. Reconciliation is the hard and bitter prize she seeks in the faces and stories of family, friends and paesani. She examines her immigrant roots in a passionate poetry unique for its direct honesty and spare beauty.
