The Family Jewels
Vincent Graziano, author
A rags to riches back to rags story of three brothers who were born and raised in a three room tenement on New York's lower east side. They were surrounded by mob influence. One brother breaks away and becomes a successful developer in Arizona. Jake takes an easier route by marrying the daughter of a powerful mafia don and a third brother Looney was never one for the drama that was part and parcel of his siblings. He was happier when they were far away. But, life and Ponzi schemes throws them a curve and they are homebound to regroup, forced to stay in the same three room apartment with their aged mother.
