Legendary Locals of Jersey City


Legendary Locals of Jersey City


From its primordial inception as a Dutch trading post on the left bank of the Hudson River to its late-19th-century reign as one of the world''s great industrial centers and transportation termini, Jersey City has always been a city about people-the bold pioneers who reshaped its forested hills and elevated landscapes into a major municipality brimming with immigrant-filled neighborhoods, from which emerged even more distinct personalities. Legendary Locals of Jersey City highlights these timeless citizens, including Peter Stuyvesant, the director-general of New Netherland who rescued fledgeling settlements besieged by wars with the Lenni Lenape; Erminnie Smith, who launched an immensely popular intellectual society and salon in 1876; Hugh Roberts, the falsely accused over-spending architect of the majestic Hudson County Court House; Dr. Lena Edwards, winner of the 1964 Presidential Medal of Freedom; Helene Stapinski, national bestselling author; and Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, stars of the hit HGTV series Kitchen Cousins and dedicated Jersey City developers.

Beauty Salon


Beauty Salon


Like much of Mr. Bellatin''s work, Beauty Salon is pithy, allegorical and profoundly disturbing, with a plot that evokes The Plague by Camus or Blindness by José Saramago. – New York Times

Including a few details that may linger uncomfortably with the reader for a long time, this is contemporary naturalism as disturbing as it gets. – Booklist

A strange plague appears in a large city. Rejected by family and friends, some of the sick have nowhere to finish out their days until a hair stylist decides to offer refuge. He ends up converting his beauty shop, which he''s filled with tanks of exotic fish, into a sort of medieval hospice. As his guests continue to arrive and to die, his isolation becomes more and more complete in this dream-hazy parable by one of Mexico''s cutting-edge literary stars.

Mario Bellatin , the author of numerous short novels, was born in Mexico City in 1960. In 2000, Beauty Salon was nominated for the Médicis Prize for best novel translated into French. This is its first translation into English.
