The "Capone" name is legendary throughout the entire world. Power, money, murder, there are countless books telling the life history of "Al Capone" and the "Outfit". Deirdre Capone has managed to tell the inside story of the Capone family. The story of life at 7244 Prairie Avenue. From the eyes of a little girl, she takes us inside the home of the larger than life Al Capone. As "Uncle Al's" great niece, Deirdre tells of a life of love and laughter, sadness and tragedy. She lost her father at a young age to suicide due to the burden of carrying the Capone name. And she herself suffered from that same burden. I applaud her for having the courage to write this story and share it with the world. "Uncle Al Capone" is a refreshing change of pace and is a must for any Capone fans library. When you read it, you realize that her family, excluding the outside business, isn't too terribly different than yours or mine. They loved each other unconditionally, they protected each other, and endured. If you dwell on how the Capones succeeded, your missing the point of this book. It's about family, it's about the love they shared for each other. This book is a journey, take it!!!
