Panella is also the author of a memoir, The Other Side, Growing up Italian in America, which was published in 1979, and his novel, Cutter’s Island, which won a ForeWord Magazine award in 2000. 

The American Library Association’s Booklist said of Cutter’s Island: “Panella crafts an alternately rousing and touching adventure tale that offers an intriguing glimpse into the future dictator’s psyche.

Throughout, Panella honors the sparse prose of the ancient epic, and this stirring account should be of interest to readers with even a passing interest in ancient history.”
