Oksana Marafioti - American Gypsy


Oksana Marafioti talks about American Gypsy ($16.00), a memoir about growing up Gypsy and becoming American. In this affecting, hilarious new work, Marafioti cracks open the secretive world of the Roma and brings the absurdities, miscommunications, and unpredictable victories of the immigrant experience to vivid life. With unsentimentally perfect pitch, American Gypsy reveals how Marafioti adjusted to her new life in America, one slice of processed cheese at a time.

Oksana Marafioti moved from the Soviet Union when she was fifteen years old. Trained as a classical pianist, she has also worked as a cinematographer, and now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Oksana Marafioti is on the faculty of the 21st Annual Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference, which takes place August 9-12 at Book Passage. This event is part of the Conference. It is open to the public, though priority seating is reserved for Conference participants.
