Italy, Newark and us in Century 21 (1900–2022)
“Newark, Italy & me” (Lulu.com) also got 5 stars by PRIMO in Amazon.com.
— “Daniel P Quinn has captured a bygone era with such detailed, loving, bittersweet accuracy.
Such family memories — and they are rich indeed, considering he hails from two such vibrant, singularly civilized cultures …
Irish- and Italian-American; no fooling around! The old Newark comes alive in his poignant, celebrating words …
as does the glory that was Paterson, NJ, birthplace of American industry …
— Hey, it/they — still is/are, both these wonderful, bustling, BUSY New Jersey cities! eh, all? in their 20th century heydays …
Phoenixes now rising from the strong, struggling and WONDERFULLY PERSEVERING “ashes …”?
- Nope; the people of Newark since the “White Flight,” post-WWII,
are every bit as validly vibrant as those who came before, let’s face it, eh?
— It’s just a rapidly e’er changing mixture of eras we are so challenged to be negotiating,
we Americans and we globally over-populated, fascinating yet always goofy-enough humans …
Bravo to all who appreciate the seemingly boundless energy, spirit and enterprise that is Newark.
Thank you, Mr. Quinn, for bringing the pre-21st century Newark once again to such sweet, happy life … a rewarding, compelling, intensely-personally-felt trip down Memory Lane, indeed”.
