Danny and Annie

Danny Perasa and his wife, Annie, went to StoryCorps (one of the largest oral history projects in the world—each conversation recorded on CD and preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress) to recount their twenty-seven-year romance. As they remember their life together from their first date to Danny's final days with terminal cancer, these remarkable Brooklynites personify the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people when we take the time to listen.

Two people who wove their lives around each other and who faced their separation with strength, humour and dignity.
