On the eve of World War II, in a rural New Jersey town, the indomitable Marie Genovese, a first generation Italian American, mourns her mother, battles a brother flirting with fascism, and demands her sexual freedom and autonomy. Marie forges a daring path as she sleeps with whom she pleases, searches for her missing Italian past, and takes a stand against the town’s growing authoritarian vision, making Italian Love Cake a strikingly original and contemporary narrative.
