Synopsis: The most candid (and easily the funniest) political memoir in a generation from one of the nation's most talked-about mayors "Colorful" is not a sufficient enough word to describe Buddy Cianci. The subject of a New York Times bestseller, an Emmy Award-winning documentary, and creator of Mayor's Own Marinara sauce, Buddy is seen by many as a brilliantly successful politician and by others as a rogue.
Since his first election, Buddy rose from being the underdog to becoming the longest-serving mayor of a major American city and transforming that city into an urban model. Here he recalls elections won and lost, backroom deals and publicity catastrophes, showing how things really happen in City Hall. He also doesn't shy away from discussing why he left office. However, he does deny the charge of assaulting his wife's lover with a fireplace log (he never hit the man with it). And he goes into detail about the RICO conviction that ended his political career and sent him to federal prison, telling another side of the story.
Full of surprising stories and outrageous anecdotes, Politics and Pasta is a one-of-a-kind memoir by a master of the political game. Take a bit of La Guardia, a dose of Daley, and a little of Boston's Mayor Curley and you have Buddy--master politician, master story-teller.

About the Author: VINCENT “BUDDY” CIANCI, JR. is a former prosecutor and Mayor of Providence. As mayor he was credited with turning the city around and making it a destination.
