9781615730223: The Mad Ones: Crazy Joey Gallo and the Revolution at the Edge of the Underworld

In the 1960s, a trio of rebellious young gangsters, the Gallo boys, sought to overthrow the reigning New York Mafia Dons and create a dynasty for themselves-an underworld revolution that was fueled by their leader's immersion into the era's countercultural revolution. The Gallo boys are steeped in legend, from being the subject of a Bob Dylan ballad to serving as inspiration for The Godfather trilogy to appearing in photo spreads in Life. Yet never before has their complete story been told. Now, with the authority, swagger, and flavor of a true insider (ForeWord magazine) Tom Folsom finally gives Red Hook, Brooklyn's most notorious figures their due and captures the radical spirit of 1960s New York City.

From AudioFile:

Joey Gallo was a gangster who read existential philosophers, wrote poetry, painted watercolors, and was the inspiration for Bob Dylan's song "Joey" and popular journalist Jimmy Breslin's novel THE GANG THAT COULDN'T SHOOT STRAIGHT. Narrator Josh Clark's reading of Folsom's history of the Gallo brothers is an odd mix of violence and comedy. Clark's tone is amused as he quotes Gallo: "My life is one foot in the coffin and the other on a banana peel." Clark is equally adept at recounting moments of utter brutality as Gallo brags about executing the barbershop hit on Albert Anastasia and delivering an assortment of vicious beatings. Clark has an upbeat, jazzy reading style that fits this colorful account of the life and times of "Crazy Joe." S.J.H. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
