Being an Italian American is never boring. Family ties, old traditions adapting to the present life, strong characters, a lot of passion. Mike Fiorito explores them constantly, and put into words as this is his job. The multicolored Italian American universe is the constant protagonist of Mike’s short stories and novels: the always problematic relationship between a father and a son, the typical Italian women’s strenght, the culinary tradition that conveys a whole family history.
Even in his latest work, “Falling from Trees”, a collection of science fiction short stories, Mike unveils his Italian roots, reviving the Italo Calvino’s tales tradition.
