"Crazy Joe" Gallo was a psychopathic mafioso, who bullied, extorted, and seemingly murdered people, while enjoying driving small-business people into bankruptcy. He also read philosophy, created art, and played a hipster, hanging around Greenwich Village where he became the toast of New York's glitterati. If you're curious about this sometimes-complex gangster who was entertained in the homes of New York's liberal elite, and who was lionized by Bob Dylan in the song, "Joey", this book is worth a read. But only if you can tolerate terrible writing. The author cannot keep track of who he's writing about from the beginning of a paragraph to the end. On pages 46-7, he literally adds five and five and gets thirty. Despite Dylan's opinion, Folsom shows clearly that Joe Gallo was not a Robin Hood figure, and certainly not "king of the streets."
