I came across this on Amazon and couldn’t resist posting it, Me & Melania Trump side by side in Best Sellers, books on Amazon.com … Me for my # 1 Best Selling Italian Cookbook Sunday Sauce and the book about Melania Trump ‘s “The Art of Her Deal” – The Untold Story of Melania Trump that is rated 3 Stars, written by Pulitzer Prize Winning author Mary Jordan who wrote this un-authorized biography on The First Lady of The United States. Sunday Sauce by Daniel Bellino Zwicke is rated 4.5 Stars (almost 5 Stars), and was The # 1 Best Selling Italian Cookbook on Amazon Kindle for more than two years, beating out such power-house cookbook authors as Giada de Laurentis, Lidia Bastianich, and others.
I was especially honored to be on the same page as me, the great New York Writer – Pete Hamill with his wonderful book – Downtown : My Manhattan by Pete Hamill. I’ve been a hug fan of Hamill’s for more than 40 years. I’ve read Downtown, as usual it’s a splendid book. I also read Hamill’s “A Drinking Life,” and have been reading his Daily New column, as well as many great articles he wrote for New York Magazine over the years.
