'Newark, Italy, and Me' and the Irish for 2020 (Lulu Books)

"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".

Thanks for posting. Have family from newark/area.

Dear Douglas,


Thank you, it is a really important history from the early immigrants after the Famine to today, digging the local route of the Morris Canal, Fire Dept, and Brennan Family to the Supreme Court.  

In this emergency we have had to postpone all of our 2020 programs in Montclair, Madison, Newark, Paterson and Manhattan, so have transitioned to cyber Arts and a presence with my published commentary for The New York Times in earnest .   ArtsPRunlimited Inc is a sponsored program with Fractured Atlas on the web at: http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=11419   We still use cyber constant contact technology for excellence: https://conta.cc/2DDethA

Thank you
