His first book was on the environment. The second was a smash hit smashing Chris Christie. His third book — and first novel — brings him back to his Jersey City West Side neighborhood, where he nurtured his Catholic faith at St. Aloysius Church, right at the mouth of the entrance to Lincoln Park.
Former Jersey City resident Lou Manzo, who served as a Hudson County freeholder and a state assemblyman, has written his first novel — and third book — “An Irish Lullaby,” which brings him back to his local roots.
