Al Capone

His Life, Legacy, and Legend

Unknown - 2016 | First edition
Rate this:
From his heyday to the present moment, Al Capone's life has gripped the public imagination, and his gangster persona has been immortalized in the countless movies and books inspired by his exploits. But who was the man behind the legend? Capone loved to tell tall tales that perpetuated his mystique; newspapers loved him and frequently embellished or fabricated stories about him to sell copies. While some remember him as fundamentally kind and good, others speak of how frightening he was, a vicious, cold-blooded killer. Deirdre Bair gets at the truth behind this man, who was equal parts charismatic mobster, doting father, and calculating monster.
