With or Without You

A Memoir
By Domenica Ruta

Domenica Ruta grew up poor, in an Italian blue collar area near Boston. The area had the frightening history of involvement during the Salem Witch Trials. It was difficult then, and remained difficult in Domenica’s time.
Domenica’s mother was a drug addict and dealer, whose life rose and fell with her addictions. Yet, she remained true to her daughter, giving her a love and respect for art, in all its forms.
This memoir is of a young woman coming of age during a time of changes in her world, and the world at large. It chronicles her relationship with her mother, and breaking away from her learned behaviours to find herself. This is a very powerful
book of strength, bravery, and love.
