This review is from: Find Big Fat Fanny Fast (Paperback)
This was a very funny informative look back of life in the lower east side of Manhattan. It covers the a time period of when the Italian mobsters controlled the area to the rise of the Chinese gangs and the struggles between the two groups. Some of the events in the book had to come from real life experiences (as they say you can't make up some of this stuff) but I assume the names were changed to protect the innocent or guilty.
Many parts of the book were laugh out loud funny. While I never lived in the area my father owned a bar in the area and I could visualize the streets and events through the book. If you lived on the lower east side this is a must must read book. If you didn't it is still a great read.
