description

The Mad Oneschronicles the rise and fall of the Gallo brothers, a trio of reckless young gangsters whose revolution against New York City''s Mafia was inspired by Crazy Joe Gallo''s forays into Greenwich Village counterculture.

Crazy Joe, Kid Blast, and Larry Gallo are steeped in legend, from Bob Dylan''s eleven-minute ballad “Joey to fictionalizations central toThe Godfathertrilogy and Jimmy Breslin''sThe Gang That Couldn''t Shoot Straight. Called the toughest gang in the city by the NYPD, the Gallos hailed from the rough Red Hook neighborhood on the Brooklyn waterfront. As low-level Mafiosi, they were expected to serve their don quietly, but the brothers stood apart from typical gangsters with their hip style, fierce ambition, and Crazy Joe''s manic idealism.

Here, for the first time, is the complete story of the Gallos'' war against the powerful Cosa Nostra, an epic crime saga that culminates in Crazy Joe''s murder on the streets of Little Italy, where he was gunned down mid-bite into a forkful of spaghetti in 1972.The Mad Onesis a wildly satisfying entertainment and a significant work of cultural history.

Tom Folsomis a writer, director, and producer of television documentaries for A&E and Showtime, and the coauthor ofMr. Untouchable: The Rise, Fall and Resurrection of Heroin''s Teflon Donwritten with its subject, drug-kingpin Nicky Barnes. He lives in New York City.
