Teresa Fiore, new article

Teresa Fiore, the Inserra Chair in Italian, has published a new article, “From Family to Institutional Memory: John Fante’s Archive (A Conversation with Fante’s Biographer Stephen Cooper),” Italian Americana (Issue on Italian American archives, ed. Edvige Giunta) 31.1 (Winter 2013): 17-23.

A novelist, short story writer, and scenarist of Italian descent, John Fante is now considered to be one of the great "outsider" authors of 20th-century American letters. The story of his personal collection which was recently acquired by the UCLA Library was the occasion for this article.
