When Tina De Rosa wrote her novel Paper Fish, the room where she worked was haunted by her childhood memories. Paper Fish is about an Italian-American family, certainly, but a lot more. It is about unspeakable suffering, discovery and healing, and the process of creating a new reality. De Rosa's literary voice is lyrical, emotive, and imagistic. Her speaking voice is soft. She is compassionate and playful. She also is serious and opinionated. She is more comfortable chatting with a cab driver than greeting a crowd of her fans.

Keywords:   Tina De Rosa, Paper Fish, Italian-American family, reality, suffering, discovery, healing
