LAST TABOOS LITERARY SALON: CUBAN MAFIA NIGHT Join Tony Perrottet in conversation with T.J. English about his bestseller The Corporation, a gripping tale of gangsters, drugs, violence, sex and murder that has been dubbed "a Cuban version of The Godfather" by Deadline Hollywood. By the mid-1980s, the American underworld was a vicious melting pot of powerful criminal tribes. The most feared was the Cuban mob. This organization of exiles, ruthlessly led by a kingpin named "battle", was so cold-blooded it was known on both sides of the law as "The Corporation". Drawing on first-hand accounts and deep research, and with the blistering prose that established him as "America's top chronicler of organized crime", T.J. English's The Corporation reveals how a generation of Cuban refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, hitmen, and their families got caught up in a very American saga of empire building, criminal enterprise and revolution.
