Patti LuPone

"Using the Godfather trilogy as his mirror, Tom Santopietro delivers a second-generation American's serious, yet witty analysis of Mob films, Italian life, and our shared American identity."


Jeanine Basinger, film historian and author of The Star Machine

"The Godfather Effect manages to unite film study, cultural study, and ethnic study and make it fun. It's a wonderfully touching memoir about an Italian in an Anglo world, but it's also an in-depth examination of the film itself. Highly readable."
