by Anthony Buccino
Belleville native Anthony Buccino collected his favorite and most-requested writings about life and growing up in Belleville, New Jersey.
This is Buccino's fourth collection of essays but the first wholly dedicated to his collected writings about Belleville. More than forty essays and reflections on everything from junior high school bullies to selling pretzels for Ed Strat at Belleville High School football games at Municipal Stadium. This collection includes the Excellence in Journalism award-winning Don the TV man.
Anchored in New Jersey, Buccino pays tribute to the unique Garden State Parkway toll road, but you don't have to be from NJ to enjoy this collection.
The best of Buccino's humor and homage to living life every day, with tongue firmly in cheek, in the Garden State. Buccino's been called "New Jersey's Garrison Keillor, or something like that."
