Wise Guys takes readers into the heart of Sopranos territory, with a collection featuring the work of best-selling writers from E. L. Doctorow (with an account of mobster Dutch Schultz that includes one of the great execution scenes in the literature of the Mob) to Nicholas Pileggi (on Henry Hill’s first prison term, overflowing with good pasta and booze). Other pieces include Jerry Capeci and Gene Mustain reconstruction of the vicious hit on “Big Paulie” Castellano outside of Spark’s Steakhouse (which catapulted John Gotti to leadership of the Gambino family), Mario Puzo’s riveting account of a don’s ascent (a tale of deceit, murder and, above all, cunning), and Norman Lewis on where it all began: the Sicilian Mafia’s battle against Mussolini and its return to greater strength than ever.
