If you've ever wanted to know what goes on in Middle Grade Mafioso HQ, watch this video. (The person who most closely resembles me is the "editor." I've laughed like that many, many times. I also have a very natty selection of neckties.)
Disclaimer: I first saw this video on Galleycat. It's a book trailer for The Family Corleone, by Ed Falco. The book is a prequel to The Godfather, based on a screenplay by Mario Puzo. It's published by Grand Central Publishing, and its release date is May 8th.
Check it out: “New York, 1933. The city and the nation are in the depths of the Great Depression. The crime families of New York have prospered in this time, but with the coming end of Prohibition, a battle is looming that will determine which organizations will rise and which will face a violent end. For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important that his family’s future.”
