NARROWS GATE
By Jim Fusilli
This could have been a very good Mafia book if it weren’t such a vicious, cruel and thinly veiled character assassination about an American Icon. We’re well aware that it is a fictional depiction, but the brutality and judgments were very harsh and unnecessary.
The story of the two friends growing up in the years around World War II in the very dangerous immigrant neighborhood of NARROWS GATE captures a time and an era when they were forced into choices that have a great impact on the rest of their lives. This story of the two friends is well written and becomes an epic sage of the American experience.
