Now here is a little treat for those hard core nonfiction page-flipping readers.
The L.A. Book Examiner Staff finally snapped. After the late notice received from the Rancho Cucamonga library for unreturned books, something triggered inside the L.A. Book Examiners. The on/off crime switch was flicked to the on position.
Janette Jenkins became a recurrent jay-walker. She deliberately looked for intersections with regulatory signs posted, prohibiting the act, and went for it. No shame in the game. Martin Martinez made a habit of going to local public parks to practice martial arts movements while shirtless (in broad daylight) even though he’s never taken a martial arts class in his life. And Socrates, (oh my God, Socrates) went as low as to begin a cheating career in Scrabble.
Although lawbreakers that they were, the Examiners remained loyal to literature; however, their choice of literature changed as you will attest by the list they created. In their lawbreaking stupor, the L.A. Book Examiners compiled a list of their 5 top favorite Mafiosi auto/biographies. In turn, it’s the list of books no nonfiction page-flipping reader can afford to miss out on.
