What Assistant Professor Pat Winters Lauro is saying about Heaven, Hell and Hoboken

Pat Lauro, Assistant Professor of Journalism at Kean University has somethng to say about Heaven, Hell and Hoboken.

“Heaven, Hell and Hoboken” is a fast moving tale of romance, war and the clash of immigrant cultures in early 20th century Hoboken, NJ, once a major port entry to the US.  The novel is an intriguing romance between star-crossed lovers during WWI, but it deftly chronicles a round-and tumble time when Italian and d Irish newcomers used cunning and muscle to supplant established bourgeois Germans.  Part love story-part ethnograph, Heaven, Hell and Hoboken” is an angaging read filled with insight into the dangeours Hoboken waterfront of yore.
