From Calabria to Connecticut: a sweeping family saga about sisterhood, secrets, Italian immigration, the American dream, and one woman's tenacious fight against her own fate.
Juliet Grames' richly told debut, The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna, is a tale of family transgressions as ancient and twisted as the olive branch that could heal them. For Stella Fortuna, death has always been a part of life.

Juliet Grames was born in Hartford, Connecticut, and grew up in a tight-knit Italian-American family. A book editor, she has spent the last decade at Soho Press, where she is associate publisher and curator of the Soho Crime imprint. The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna has been published in ten languages, including Italian.

"The author's grandmother inspired this meaty family saga set in Calabria and Connecticut, crossing two centuries and five generations... In conjuring this absorbing life, Grames has created a satisfying doorstop of a book, rich in detail, tightly written and delightfully easy to get lost in." - The New York Times
"Magically real... Achieves what no sweeping history lesson about American immigrants could: It brings to life a woman that time and history would have ignored." - Washington Post
"Epic in scale and richly detailed... Grames holds the reader under a spell from start to finish." - O, the Oprah Magazine
Books available for purchase and signing.
