Chicagoland, 1979: In this too-good-to-be-true story of one boy's life in an interracial family, James Anthony Zoccoli recalls growing up as a half-Italian, half-Polish kid who wants to be Black when his White mom marries an African-American man. Hilarity ensues!
Praise for WiggerLover:

"Zoccoli's precious and enthusiastic childlike warmth is the thread that endears you to his story and overshadows its painful revelations."- Chicago Stage Review
"A hilarious myriad of music, comedy, history and memoir, the hour-long retrospective delves into touchy topics with wit and heart." - Centerstage Chicago
"Zoccoli's a gifted storyteller and born entertainer." - New City
