Check out this book about Frank Bompensiero by his nephew. He paints his uncle in a new light, compared to the book "A bad, bad boy".

I always thought it was comical how Judith Moore made Frank look like "Father of the Year" in her book. Glad to see opposing opinions so we can draw our own conclusions.

I finally finished Niputi. Interesting insight to what I believe many Italian-Americans felt towards the black sheep in their families. Joe does a fairly good job describing his uncle the real Frank Bompensiero, his flaws and weaknesses, and his outright disgust for him as he grew to know him. He thoroughly describes the Nate Rosenberg connection, with a few surprises. A good read in my opinion. Congrats Joe.
