FAKE ITALIAN An 83% True Autobiography with Pseudonyms and Some Tall Tales (VIA Folios)

by | Read by Frank Franconeri

Biography & Memoir • 23.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Frank Franconeri immerses listeners in this audiobook with his intimate, comic performance of a young nerd from Staten Island who tries desperately to fit in with his peers. Damien is a bright student who knows little of life or his Italian heritage. He spends his time fending off bullies, trying to be as Italian as he can be, and seeking his first sexual experience. The heavy New York accents heard in the dialogue are difficult to follow, with instances of profanity being the exception. But Franconeri uses his comedic timing and tone to keep listeners engaged with this unique coming-of-age memoir, which claims to be only 83% true.
