October 2018 Is Italian-American Heritage Month. Publisher Avi Gvili of Boulevard Books announces that the hit comedy book “God, Please Give Me Patience…and Hurry!” written by TV sketch comedy writer Michael Conley and Brooklyn born Sicilian-American actress Candice Azzara is a pivotal part of Italian-American Heritage Month designated during October 2018.

Azzara also dedicates the book to her Sicilian mother, Josephine Bravo Azzara and pays homage to her in Chapter 15 called “Italian Mothers” in “God, Please Give Me Patience…and Hurry!” She celebrates her landmark 40th Anniversary from her Broadway career and humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York to acting and living in Hollywood where she starred in the hit comedy movies: HOUSE CALLS with Walter Matthau and Art Carney, EASY MONEY with Rodney Dangerfield and Joe Pesci, and FATSO with Dom DeLuise and Anne Bancroft. Ironically, Pesci, DeLuise and Bancroft are all of Italian descent, too.
