This Family of Mine

This Family of MineVictoria Gotti

Victoria Gotti, daughter of mafia boss John Gotti, writes a surprisingly articulate and interesting tell-all about her life in relation to the mafia. She chronicles her father’s early life and his various successes and failures. Some of Gotti’s claims of innocence for her father and brother should be taken with a grain (block) of salt. On the whole, however, Gotti gives a clear and honest look at what a trying and hard life it can be having family who are “made men.” She tells of endless prison visits, her failing health, stress, desires for children, her writing career and the benefits and problems associated with a last name like Gotti. A tough-as-nails lady – admirable and interesting.
