book.jpgIn the Hand of Dante (Little, Brown)

Nick Tosches, a veteran tough guy, tells us what happens when the original manuscript of The Divine Comedy falls into the hands of the Mafia. The caper evokes all of the author-s complex oppositions: high and low culture, violent death and eternal life, classical knowledge and street smarts.

Read an excerpt from In the Hand of Dante.
