Through My Laughter and Tears: Returning Home to the Bronx — A Memoir


Annette Stanzione was born into a Catholic-Italian family in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx in the 1950s.

In Through My Laughter and Tears, Annette relays anecdotes from her childhood to her first job working for the FBI, becoming a paralegal at forty-seven, getting married and then divorced, raising two daughters, dating, living upstate for three decades, and then eventually returning home to the Bronx.

Annette’s story is an engaging mix of humor and gravitas as she wends her way through triumphs and difficulties. Although she’s still looking for love — and loving the process of finding it — she perseveres with charm, wit, and warmth.

You’ll be drawn into Annette’s world and wish she was your best friend.
