Frank DiMatteo Interview

Interviews are a strange thing to behold. I’ve interviewed writers, which is easy. You can sit down with a guy like Richard Kadrey and ask if he prefers Sam Peckinpah or Sergio Leone. Or a guy like Todd Robinson and ask about the benefits using a Sharpie as a weapon. Those are less interviews and more conversations with people who have read the same books as you and watched the same movies. You can talk shit and before you know it, 3 hours have passed. Frank DiMatteo was different… The man has been places and done things most people...

5 Films That Influenced Me

As a kid, I have to admit that I was never much of a reader. I didn’t like to read, preferring to watch movies instead. Maybe it was because I was an only child and watching movies with my parents was a way for us to bond somehow. Fortunately for me, my dad had pretty good taste in movies and it helped me appreciate good films from bad. The five movies that changed my life all have something in common because, like a good book, they tell a good story. In no particular order: 1. The Searchers Much has been made in recent years about whether or...

Review of THE PRESIDENT STREET BOYS by Frank DiMatteo

THE PRESIDENT STREET BOYS Frank DiMatteo July 2016 Kensington OK, first off, this is not a true crime mafia tell all. It is actually a memoir. Second, yes, there is death and mayhem, but not how you expect. Third, it’s not about a single gangster. It’s about the crew and the world around them. Some of you will pick up this book with preconceived notions. I did. That changed fast and it will for you readers as well. I digress; let me go back to the beginning. Frank DiMatteo was born into a world of mafia hitmen in 1950s South...
