Mailbox Monday: Al Capone

A new biography showed up in my mailbox last week. What books came into your house?



Al Capone: His Life, Legacy, and Legend by Deirdre Bair. Al Capone's story in Boardwalk Empire was riveting. It made me want to learn more about America's legendary gangster. I'm looking forward to this brand-new biography from Deirdre Bair, who won the National Book Award for her biography of Samuel Becket.
