November Book of the Month
Belleville native Anthony Buccino has collected your favorite and most-requested writings about life and growing up in Belleville, New Jersey.
Greetings From Belleville, New Jersey - Collected writings includes more than 40 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.
Buccino writes about those duck-and-cover drills in elementary school, junior high school bullies, and high school joy riding to Monk's Castle and Albino Village. Spanning six decades, this collection shares the bitter and the sweet, all in an ultimate tribute to growing up in this middle class township in northern New Jersey.
This is Buccino's fourth collection of essays but the first wholly dedicated to his collected writings about Belleville.
Buccino writes with clarity and humor in his columns about growing up in the second half of the 20th century. He has been called “New Jersey’s Garrison Keillor or something to that effect.” His writing about life in northern New Jersey has been published in area newspapers, The Nutley Sun, The Belleville Times, The Nutley Journal, The Belleville Post, Belleville Patch, NJ Voices, Baristanet and other publications.
Makes a great gift no matter where you're from.
I’m thankful for growing up in old Belleville. New Jersey, that is, not Belleville, Ontario, or Belleville, Illinois, or Belleville, Michigan, or Belleville, Kansas or even Belleville, Paris. I’m thankful for growing up in good old Belleville, New Jersey.
