39 brighton street

In 1925 Maria Concetta and Guiseppe Famularo arrived in Island Bay, New Zealand from the tiny volcanic island of Stromboli. Eighty-five years later, Maria Concetta’s youngest son Dominic, alone and unwell, moved into a rest home. As if guided by the spirit of her great-aunt, the author arrived at 39 Brighton St, uncovering its hidden secrets, discovering her history and reflecting on her own life and future.

39 Brighton St is the fusion of an Italian heritage, person experiences and self-reflection linked with recipes, poetry and historical facts.
