Bada Bing! Leonard Pierce and Scott Von Doviak discuss the HBO drama series The Sopranos as well as its influences like The Godfather, the movies and shows it spawned, and lesser known gems any Sopranos fan will love. If you like The Sopranos, listen up!

Onstage and Backstage


About the Book
If You Like The Sopranos... by Leonard Pierce (Limelight Editions)
From Robin Hood and his Merry Men to the bloody aftermath of Macbeth, fictional lawbreakers have been both celebrated and vilified in every era. And as long as there have been criminals, both real and imag­ined, there have been people to tell stories about them. It is only appropriate that The Sopranos appeared when it did, in the dying days of the twentieth century, a century that became a fruitful time for crime dramas due to advancements in art and technology, as well as a reality all too eager to supply the material—advancements in organized crime. If You Like The Sopranos provides an illuminating portrait of those elements that came together to create the stellar artistic achievement that is The Sopranos, and it follows the new trails the television show left when it exploded into the cultural consciousness, heralding the arrival of a new era of storytelling.

Leonard Pierce has obsessed over movies, music, TV, and books since childhood, and has turned that obsession into work that has appeared on TV.com, Nerve.com, the AV Club, the Chicago Tribune, McSweeney’s, and many other places. He is a cofounder of the High Hat, an online magazine of arts and culture, and the proprietor of LudicLive.com. Follow him on Twitter.

Scott Von Doviak has been writing about film, television, and pop culture for more than a decade. He is a regular contributor to the A.V. Club, Nerve, and the For Worth Star-Telegram. He is the author of Hick Flicks: The Rise and Fall of Redneck Cinema and the forthcoming If You Like The Terminator... (June 2012, Limelight Editions). Follow him on Twitter.

The If You Like series plays the game of cultural connectivity at a high level—each book is written by an expert in their field and travels far beyond the expected, unearthing treats that will enlighten even the most jaded couch potato or pop culture vulture. Every volume tackles several genres, so If You Like the Beatles… introduces the reader not only to records, but to movies and TV shows as well, just as the Sopranos and the Monty Python editions of the If You Like series tackle jewels beyond the small screen.

Cary Ginell, author of Mr. B: The Music and Life of Billy Eckstine  and Walk Tall, recently met up (again) with the folks at Inquiry to discuss The Evolution of Mann!

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book More than any other musician, Herbie Mann was responsible for establishing the flute as an accepted jazz instrument. In The Evolution of Mann: Herbie Mann and the Flute in Jazz, Cary Ginell explores Mann’s fascinating career, which spanned five decades, from his beginnings in a tiny Brooklyn nightclub to his appearances on international stages. “I want to be as synonymous with the flute as Benny Goodman is for the clarinet,” Mann was fond of saying.  By the time he died of prostate caner in 2003, he had fulfilled his desires.
