Anthony Buccino has published his third poetry collection AMERICAN BOY: Pushing Sixty

Working class verse about life and growing up in New Jersey.

About life and growing up in New Jersey in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, and growing older in the 1980s, 1990s and the oughts.
 From the center of the Baby Boom, this working class verse begins under a wooden class room desk as an air raid siren sounds, and captures the summer spell and its simplicity in drinking water from a garden hose.

Nutley, New Jersey, author Anthony Buccino published eighteen books including four essay collections, three military history books and seven full-length poetry collections. 

Buccino won two 2014 Society of Professional Journalists Excellence in Journalism Awards in Online Media Affiliated Blog.  His stories of the 1960s and his transit blog on NJ.com earned earlier SPJ Excellence In Journalism awards.  The Pushcart Prize-nominated writer has been called ' “New Jersey’s ‘Garrison Keillor” or something to that effect.’

A financial news editor by day, Buccino nonetheless writes with humor on his many feature length posts on NJ.com, in essays and in poetry. 

Anthony Buccino created the New Jersey Poets and Poetry site online, a collection of poetry news and events.
