I read "My Life in the Mafia" by Vinnie Teresa and the Sammy the Bull book, I forget the title.

For fictional mob stories that seem to nail it down even better than reality, you must read Mario Puzo. NEVER MIND THE MOVIE, no matter how good it was - READ THE BOOK "The Godfather", and tack on The Sicilian for dessert, same author.

This is the absolute wrong attitude. Good fiction tells the truth better than the truth can tell itself. It gets to the heart of what people are about and makes you understand it like nothing else can.

"Polluted with mystical characters"? I guess I don't know what you mean.

try tokyo underworld which is a true story about a retired american veteran which gets involved in the yakuza [japanese mob] after WWII. its really interesting about how the yakuza ripped off george bush sr. and how involved they are in japanese business. they seem to have their hands in everything in japan and in america.

yeah brother is dope i saw it when it came out in the theaters. my only complaint was except for... shit i forgot his name, maurice maybe? beato takeshi should have gotten some better actors to play the americans. he just ended up getting americans that lived in japan. i mean the mafia actors were really horrible. but other than that dope. "fucking jap gurai wakareyo baka yarou.":cool:
