PhotobucketPhotobucket Michele Carlo is a writer/performer who has lived in four of the five boroughs of New York City and can remember when a slice of pizza cost fifty cents. Her memoir, Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks, published this summer by Citadel Press, recounts Carlo's growing up as a double-outsider: A red-headed, freckled, English-speaking Puerto Rican in an Italian/Irish neighborhood in The Bronx before both the "multicultural" and "politically correct" revolutions. The New York Daily News said of her: "...drive, strength and honesty permeates her memoir, which is hilarious at times and dead-serious at others." The Wall Street Journalsaid: (Fish Out Of Agua) "exposes a near-extinct New York." And Bust magazine declared: "Michele's personal journey is compelling."
