A Sitdown With the Sopranos: Watching Italian American Culture on TV's Most Talked-About Seriesby Regina Barreca (Editor)
With over 9.5 million viewers and in its fourth smash season, The Sopranos has profoundly altered Americans' views of New Jersey, HBO, Sunday nights, and especially Italian American culture and life. The show has not been without critics, who have lambasted The Sopranos for presenting negative stereotypes of Italian Americans. A Sitdown with the Sopranos is an insightful and balanced reply to this criticism from some of the country's most important Italian American writers. Edited by Regina Barreca, an acclaimed writer, scholar, and national columnist, the book examines eight key components of Italian American life and considers how accurately the show portrays these topics.
