Annie Rachele Lanzillotto reads from L Is for Lion: An Italian Bronx Butch Freedom Memoir (SUNY Press, 2013)
This memoir takes readers into a world of immigration, gay subculture, cancer treatment, mental illness, gender dynamics, drug addiction, and domestic violence--a world peopled by a vast array of Italian-American characters. In the street, Lanzillotto bounced her Spaldeen on the stoop; inside, she tapped calls for help on the heat pipes when her father beat her mother. Later, she discovered a massive tumor inside her chest, a circumstance that initiated her truth-seeking journey for survival.
