"A revealing memoir by the daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, and star of the VH1 reality TV show" Mob Wives
Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy "the Bull" Gravano, one of the mafia's most feared hit men. With 19 confessed murders, the former Gambino Family underboss was John Gotti's right-hand man, and the highest ranking gangster ever to turn State's evidence and testify against members of his high-profile crime family.
But to Karen, Sammy Gravano was a sometimes elusive but always loving father figure. He was ever-present at the head of the dinner table. He made a living running a construction firm and several nightclubs. He stayed out late, and sometimes he didn't come home at all. He hosted "secret" meetings at their house, and had countless whispered conversations with "business associates." By the age of twelve, Karen knew he was a gangster. And as she grew up, while her peers worried about clothes and schoolwork, she was coming face-to-face with crime and murder. Gravano was nineteen years old when her father turned his back on the mob and cooperated with the Feds. The fabric of her family was ripped apart, and they were instantly ostracized from the communities they grew up in, living in fear of retaliation.
This is the story of a daughter's struggle to reconcile the image of her loving father with that of a murdering Mafioso, and how, in the rift between the two, she was able to forge a life.
