What My Arms Can Carry is Gianna Patriarca's fourth book of poetry. She returns to the themes she explored first in the award winning Italian Women and Other Tragedies - the dislocation wrought on the lives of immigrants and the children of immigrants, the dream of returning "that dream for another lifetime," the deep pearl of memory.






In her fourth book of poetry, this Canadian author of Italian ancestry returns to the themes of immigration and memory that characterised her first book. Gutsy and direct, her voice is also tender and humorous as her poems create small portraits of people in the midst of daily life.
