Overview

Straight from East New York, the dark heart of Brooklyn, RUMBLE IN BROOKLYN depicts the street fighting childhood of Joseph Trigoboff, who knew and exchanged blows with several of the murderous gangsters who would later become famous in WISEGUY and GOODFELLAS.

In some critical ways RUMBLE serves as a prequal to these other works but it is also a book about the importance of family life to cushion the horrors of a a deadly neighborhood and the enduring power of childhood friendships.

Editorial Reviews

Loren D. Esteman
It’s damn good and harrowing. I hope Joseph Trigoboff won’t take it amiss when I say he’s a Betty Smith for the twenty-first century. A tree may indeed grow in Brooklyn, but if Rumble in Brooklyn is any indication, it survived the rest of the forest. This is an honest and candid self-portrait set against a city of many contradictions that reads like a good novel. — Loren D. Esteman, author of The True Confessions of Al Capone, an Edgar Nominee
Warren Murphy
Rumble in Brooklyn is one of those all-too-rare books that combines history and art with intelligence, heart, and wit. If you want to know the way it really was, “Rumble” will show you. Outstanding. — Warren Murphy, screenwriter, The Eiger Sanction, Lethal Weapon 2
