In this memoir, reality, history and imaginative narrative alternate frequently. It recounts the life-story of a boy in war-torn Italy and, later, his life as an immigrant in Canada. The title Giovanni’s Journey is inspired by my middle name. My father named me Osvaldo, but my mother preferred Giovanni (Gianni), her father’s first name. Thus, I honour my grandfather, Giovanni Amadio, and the memory of my mother, to whom this book is dedicated.
