As one excited early reviewer noted, Paul David Pope's The Deeds of My Fathers has it all: "immigrants, moguls, presidents, Mafiosi, sex, success, loyalty, betrayal, and that most outrageous, scandalous, audacious and—as it turns out—imitated of media ventures, The National Enquirer." To amass that moveable feast, Pope spent ten years researching the lives of his Italian immigrant New Yorker powerbroker grandfather Generose Pope and his magazine publisher father Gene Pope, Jr. In the process, he and his researchers conducted more than 450 interviewed and generated over 50,000 pages. Repeatedly revelatory; deserves major reviews.
