Salvatore La Puma was born in Brooklyn in 1929. A novelist and short story writer, La Puma received the 1987 Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction and a 1988 American Book Award for his first story collection, The Boys of Bensonhurst. That book was followed in 1991 by A Time for Wedding Cake, a novel, and in 1992 by a second story collection, Teaching Angels to Fly. Most of La Puma’s fiction takes place in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, his own neighborhood until 1959. He now lives in Santa Barbara, California.
Like his 1990 novel, A Time for Wedding Cake, this second collection of stories from La Puma, who won a Flannery O'Connor award for The Boys of Bensonhurst (1987), is a disappointment: 14 snippets of melodrama and sentiment, only sporadically deepened by authentic ethnic flavor.
