ORDERING FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
For U.S. destinations, we can guarantee delivery before Christmas for all orders placed by December 10. Domestic orders placed December 11 or later may still arrive in time (we’ll be doing our best to get everything sent out quickly), but after December 10 only those orders which request Expedited Shipping can be guaranteed on-time. We also recommend using Expedited Shipping if you need your items to arrive by an earlier date (for a holiday party, Hannukah, etc.). Expedited orders placed by 2 p.m. Eastern will ship on the same day.
For orders shipping outside of the U.S., unfortunately we aren’t able to guarantee delivery time (it’s in the hands of the postal service, which does slow down around this time of the year), but we’d recommend ordering sooner rather than later, and we’ll be working hard to get your package in the mail as quickly as we can!

Book: Greetings From Bury Park
|Quantity in Basket:none|
Shipping Weight: 1.30 pounds
|The 2007 memoir by Sarfraz Manzoor and the inspiration for the 2019 film Blinded By the Light, in a motion-picture tie-in edition with a new Afterword.
The author was two years old when he emigrated from Pakistan to Britain in 1974. He spent his teenage years in a constant battle, trying to reconcile being both British and Muslim, trying to fit in at school and at home. But at age 16, when his best friend introduced him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, his life changed completely. From the moment he heard the harmonica and opening lines to "The River," Springsteen became Sarfarz's personal muse.
Both a tribute to Springsteen and a story of personal discovery, Greetings From Bury Park is a warm, irreverent, and funny memoir about how music transcends religion and race.
If you enjoyed the Blinded film (Manzoor also co-wrote the screenplay), we highly recommend you read its inspiration.
