The best-loved crime family in America is just part of a grand tradition of mob movies, gangster flicks, great television dramas, and a sensibility that is part Sicily and part New Jersey.
If You Like the Sopranos... is the first book that starts with Tony and the gang in their humble homes in the Garden State and explores the astonishing amount of great films, TV shows, and other pop-culture wonders that any fan of the Sopranos will love.
From The Godfather and Bonnie and Clyde to The Wire, to lesser-known noirs, Jimmy Cagney classics, contemporary HBO dramas, Martin Scorsese's best work, and even the rock'n'roll that inspired the classic Sopranos soundtrack, this is the one book that every fan needs if he or she ever has to go on the lam.
