Take the Cannoli: Stories From the New World is a collection of essays by Sarah Vowell, originally published by Simon & Schuster in 2000. In it, she discusses everything from her obsession with The Godfather (the title of the book comes from a line from Godfather caporegime Peter Clemenza), music lessons, the intersection of Michigan and Wacker in Chicago, to her experience retracing her ancestors' journey on the Trail of Tears and much more.[1][2]

The A.V. Club called the book a "surprisingly successful assessment of American life free from the trappings of grandiosity."[3]
