Author Lansky relates the stories of her "uncles" Busgy" Siegel, Joe Adonis, Albert Anastasia, and others who her father may have had something to do with their demise. One of Meyer Lansky's proudest possessions was a memorial book relating to the surrender on the battleship Missouri and personally autographed by General MacArthur and Admiral Nimitz among others. The Navy had given it to him from the U. S.Read more ›
Reads like a true story of a real Jewish American Princess who was truly loved by her father and mother.
A really good read.
I definitely think this book was selective in what was told. However.
I enjoyed the book. The greater part of the story was about Sandra
Lansky's life. She adored her dad and of course he did not tell her
any of his business. She did justify all that she read and heard about him.
One son made it out of the "family", but Sandra and her younger brother
were always a part family life. It was interesting to see "love" as defined
by criminals. I do recommend this book. Read it as an interesting aspect of
life in the Mafia, but understand, it is told from a child's view. Later it is told
from an adults view, but certainly through rose colored glasses.
Sandry Lansky writes an honest biography about growing-up with her gangster father, Meyer Lansky.
Like most children, she didn't want to face up to what her father was. He would forever be her Daddy, who loved her, and could do no wrong in her eyes.
An honest, eye-opening biography on growing up with the mob. Christine Schulz
