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 more.[1][2]


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