My Cousin the Saint in Paperback–With My Blurb!

Remember when I reviewed My Cousin the Saint by Justin Catanoso?

Well the paperback version comes out in a couple of days, and my review is quoted in the blurbs in the front of the book! How exciting!

Yes, if you follow me @michellefabio on Twitter or are my friend on Facebook, you already know this–and if you’re not following or friending yet, come on over! Did you know I was also recently named one of 20 Interesting Expats to Follow on Twitter by Matador? I’m so honored!

Anyway, I *still* highly recommend Justin’s book–this is a fabulous gift for an Italian, especially a Calabrian–so if you need a regalo, haven’t gotten your copy yet, or were simply waiting for paperback, the release date is June 16, 2009; you can pre-order My Cousin the Saint: A Story of Love, Miracles, and an Italian Family Reunited here.
