More from my conversation with Adriana Trigiani

Here's a snippet:
"So my grandmother (after her husband's death at age 39 in WW II) became about doing A LOT of things - while she kept the shoeshop going and was being a seamstress and & tailor she also kept books for an ice company.

For all of us in the throws of whole economic downturn - there's a lot of wisdom and lessons in this that none of us can do one thing. We have to do a lot of different jobs to sustain our familes and THAT has always been the waft and the weave and the fabric of where I come from. I always assumed I would work. Always assumed that. Because of my grandmothers."

Adriana's new book is "Very Valentine"
