Belleville native Anthony Buccino has collected his favorite and your most-requested writings about life and growing up in Belleville, New Jersey.
Geetings From Belleville New Jersey, Collected writings is Buccino's fourth collection of essays but the first wholly dedicated to his writings about Belleville.
More than forty essays and reflections on everything from junior high school bullies to selling pretzels for Ed Strat (Belle Maid) at Belleville High School football games at Municipal Stadium.
This collection includes the NJSPJ Excellence in Journalilsm award-winning pieces Don the TV man, Penny Candy from the Corner Store and Gary's English Racer vs. My Schwinn.
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.
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, Belleville Patch, NJ Voices, Baristanet and other publications.
