John Domini's Midlife Journey Through Naples Helps Him Discover His Father's Past

JD_BOOK.jpg

John Domini grew up hearing his father’s stories of life in Naples, Italy, made all the more alluring by a couple of family visits to the homeland. As an adult he found himself returning to this city again and again as he was searching for himself. These journeys also deepened his understanding of his father and family.

On this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe speaks with Domini about his journeys, physical and emotional, through Naples in his new memoir, “The Archeology of a Good Ragù: Discovering Napes, My Father and Myself.”
