Her father called her his little princess... The adored only child of affluent parents who placed the world at her feet, Amy Fisher had a glowing future. But she yearned for excitement, for the dark thrill of danger. Her friends called her a mysterious loner... While her classmates happily planned dates for the prom, 17-year-old Amy Fisher appalled them with tales of her wild sexual escapades, of her steamy, obsessive alleged affair with a married man--of a wife she wanted out of the picture. Police called her a call girl and a killer... But it wasn't until Amy was arrested for attempting to slay unsuspecting Mary Jo Buttafuoco in cold blood in front of her own home, that police and reporters uncovered stories that included a sinister hidden world of secret call girl rings, attempts to hire hitmen with payment in sex--and a beeper still nestled in her purse on which clients could page her with personal codes. Veteran People reporter Maria Eftimiades has covered the case in Lethal Lolita--and in this riveting book reveals a story even more shocking than the sensational headlines that captured the attention of the nation, and turn an all-American town inside out.

Hispanic New York

A Sourcebook

Over the past few decades, a wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien group within a "mainstream" and supposedly pure "Anglo" America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latinos have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once celebrated as "the Spanish element of our nationality." Hispanic New York is the first anthology to offer a comprehensive view of this multifaceted heritage. Combining familiar materials with other selections that are either out of print or not easily accessible, Claudio Iván Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latinoization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays on history, demography, racial and ethnic studies, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as José Martí, Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to contemporary writers, such as Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, and Ana Celia Zentella. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Latino components.
