Description of Myself

I am a journalist and author who has contributed to many newspapers, magazines, journals and websites. My book An Offer We Can't Refuse: The Mafia in the Mind of America (Faber & Faber/Farrar, Straus, Giroux) examines the Mafia Mythology, one of the longest running shows in popular culture. My interests include culture and the arts, radical politics and social theory, sexuality, food and public health. I'm the grandson of immigrants from Sicily and Naples, and I enjoy visiting both places, although I've had a few less than wonderful experiences in both. I live in Long Island City, New York with my longtime partner Rob, a Jewish italophile (lucky me!). I-italy represents my first adventure in blogging.
