I sat down with Helene Stapinski, author of "Five Finger Discount, A Crooked Family History" at Word Booksellers, 123 Newark Avenue in downtown Jersey City. I read "Five Finger Discount" a while back and wanted to read it again as soon as I was done.
It chronicles her experiences with her family growing up in a gritty Jersey City in the early 1970's as well as the political corruption over the years and lots of other history.
Helene is also raising money for a documentary version of the book. The Kickstarter campaign is over, but you can still contribute here:
