Anthony Giardina is an American novelist, short story writer, essayist and playwright. He started his professional career as an actor, and later he switched to playwriting, and eventually began writing novels. His work is particularly influenced by American culture in the 1950s. He was born in 1950 and grew up on a street in Waltham, Massachusetts, a largely Italian and Irish working class "sleeper" suburb of Boston on the trolley line to Cambridge.

The University of Rochester Rare Books and Special Collections acquired the Giardina Papers beginning in the Fall of 2008.  More information may be found at http://www.lib.rochester.edu/index.cfm?page=4656.
