Just finished Anthony Destefano's bio of Frank Costello, "Top Hoodlum." Destefano wrote a brilliant bio of Joe Massino. His Costello book isn't quite in the same league. He gives great detail on Costello's personal life and how he built his fortune. But there's practically no detail on how he ran the Luciano Family for 20 years--nothing that shows him as a Don, rather than an enterprising criminal businessman. Still, it's head and shoulders above the usual Mob bios.

Ntra la porta tua lu sangu sparsu,
E nun me mporta si ce muoru accisu...
E s'iddu muoru e vaju mparadisu
Si nun ce truovo a ttia, mancu ce trasu.

I still remember him writing re: an attractive Irish American FBI agent something like, "her brunette hair belied her Irish heritage."

Even though most Irish women have brunette hair. You would think with millions of Irish Americans in NY De Stefano would know what they look like.

It's the equivalent of me writing a book and saying "her Roman nose belied her Roman heritage."

"You hear a little girl, Frankie? Is that a little girl, Ace? Is that a little fuckin' girl? What happened to the fuckin' tough guy who told my friend to stick it up his fuckin' ass?"
