The True Tale of A Family of PsychicsBook - 2004
A Six Feet Under-style story of a family of psychics by one of America's most trusted clairvoyants. Most weekends in the 1950s, the Iacuzzo house in Buffalo, New York, was filled with adults and children from around the neighborhood. If Mary Iacuzzo wasn't yelling at the women to stop hanging on to cheating husbands, then the neighborhood kids were screaming and running from the messages daughter Rosemary was delivering from dead relatives. Son Frank recounted his dreams-which often came true-as he prepared his younger sisters for school each morning. Terry, the youngest, obsessively began counting tiles and tracing patterns in an attempt to cope with the mass of information about other people's lives that flooded her tiny being. And from behind the bar of his restaurant, their father doled out predictions on everything from horse races to politics. This is the ordinary and extraordinary Sicilian family out of which sprang one of the country's most prominent psychics, Terry Iacuzzo, who has such a high-powered client list that it will remain a secret till her dying day. It's the story of the spiritual underground of 1960s and 1970s New York City. It's the story of the birth of a great seer. As Marisa Tomei has said, Terry Iacuzzo's "life has to be a movie."
