Marc Zimmerman: 'Lines on th Border' and 'The Italian Daze'

Lines on the Border, on a young man's encounters with Mexico , begins with "On the Road too" which starts in  Berkeley and the Bay area and includes remarkable portraits of border situations and people.  The Italian Daze deals with the fascination which is Italy as it portrays the Italian American and Italian love affairs, friendships and political encounters of a writer-professor in the course of his wandering life. One of the stories starts and reaches its climax in the little theater on the Berkeley campus, as it works around the Bay area down to small Mexican border towns.

Marc Zimmerman, holds a Creative Writing M. A. from San Francisco State University and a Comparative Literature Ph.D. from the University of California at San Diego.  He has taught World, Latin American and Latino Studies in several universities; and he has written and edited over thirty books.  He has recently concentrated on “memoir fictions” with four published volumes and other volumes on their way dealing with Italian, Latin American, Latino and Jewish American themes.
