Description: Meyer Lansky. Bugsy Siegel. Louis Lepke, the self-effacing mastermind of Murder, Inc. Red Levine, the Othodox hit man who refused to kill on the Sabbath. These are just some of the vibrant characters Rich Cohen's father reminisced about and the author evokes so pungently in Tough Jews.

Tracing a generation of Jewish gangsters from the candy stores of Brownsville to the clubhouses of the Lower East Side -- and, occasionally, to suites at the Waldorf -- Cohen creates a densely anecdotal and gruesomely funny history of muscle, moxie, and money. Filled with fixers and schlammers, the squeal of tires and the raffle of gunfire, his book shatters stereotypes as deftly as its subjects once shattered kneecaps.
