Andrea Giovino’s story is memorable for its insights and scathing, ironic humor. Andrea grew up in a large, crime-connected Italian family. Attractive, sexy, and smart, she did what was needed to survive the harsh realities of being a woman in the world of organized crime. Married to a mobster, Andrea talks about such housewifely tasks as washing blood-stains out of her husband’s clothing and keeping guns away from the kids. While this is not award-winning prose, the multitalented Barbara Rosenblat does her magic. She announces each cassette in her cultivated tones, then immediately switches believably to Andrea’s Brooklynese. Rosenblat’s per-formance makes this real-life Carmela Soprano a compelling figure.
