About the Author
The book is informed by Carolyn Arturi’s own experiences with organized crime. Her father was involved with crime families in New York and New Jersey, offering a window into a crime world that taught her about the inescapable violence that comes with the lifestyle. Kirkus Reviews: "A goodfella recounts his life of crime, killing and evading the law in this pitch-perfect dark novel." "Arturi's debut reads like a long, comfortable conversation with the narrator as he looks back on a life well-lived, one he considers honorable, generous, and family-focused." "The author's ability to mimic the genuine sentiment and chatter among members of organized crime is amply demonstrated." "An engrossing mob life tale told in an authentic voice."
