This thrillingly comic, internationally bestselling Mafia farce is the inspiration for the major motion picture The Family starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones, and produced by Martin Scorsese. 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 Sopranos in Normandy). And when imprisoned mobster Don Mimino gets wind of their location, it' s Mafia mayhem A la Josh Bazell' s Beat the Reaper , or like The Godfather 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.
