Mike Kelly is an award-winning columnist for The (Bergen) Record of New Jersey and the author of three critically acclaimed non-fiction books.
His latest book, “The Bus on Jaffa Road,” chronicles a single act of terrorism and what happened as the families of the victims attempted to seek justice. The book, which will be published in October 2014, has been described as “destined to become a literary classic”, “non-fiction at its very best” and a “masterpiece” that “goes deep below the rhetoric on the ‘war on terror’.”
Kelly’s first book, “Color Lines” told the story of a town’s struggles to achieve racial harmony. The Washington Post called the book “American journalism at its best.”
Kelly’s “Fresh Jersey,” a collection of his columns about New Jersey, was described as “wonderful, touching, funny, perceptive” by best-selling novelist Mary Higgins Clark.
He is married and the father of two adult daughters. He lives in Teaneck, N.J.
