About this product
- Description<b><b><b><b>Imagine <i>The Sopras </i>transplanted to the French countryside .</b></b></b></b> This thrillingly comic, internationally bestsellingMafia farce is the inspiration for the major motion picture <i>The Family </i>starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones, and produced by Martin Scorsese<b>.</b> The Blakes are newcomers to a small town in Normandy. Fred is a historian researching the Allied landings, Maggie enjoys charity work, and their kids are looking forward to meeting other teenagers at the local lycee. Or so it seems. In fact, Fred is really Giovanni Manzoni, an ex-goodfella turned stool pigeon who s been relocated from New Jersey to France by the FBI s witness protection program. He s got a two-million-dollar bounty on his head, but he and his family can t help attracting attention (imagine the Sopras in Normandy). And when imprisoned mobster Don Mimi gets wind of their location, it s Mafia mayhem a la Josh Bazell s <i>Beat the Reaper</i>, or like <i>The Godfather </i>as if written by Carl Hiaasen. Because while you can take the man out of the Mafia, you can t take the Mafia out of the man.
