"In 1980, my life as a goodfella came to an end...I traded my Brioni and Armani suits for t-shirts and jeans. I became a normal citizen. I became Joe Schmoe," says Henry Hill, the author of 'Gangsters and Goodfellas' and subject of 'Wiseguy' - the basis of the blockbuster film, Goodfellas. After a quarter century of silence, Henry Hill can finally tell us the rest of the story. This book picks up where 'Wiseguy' left off, taking readers on the crazy ride of Henry's life - hiding out in the witness protection programme, doing prison time for drug charges, testifying in high-profile heavily guarded Mafia trials, leaving his wife and children, and eventually ending up in the entertainment industry. Including Henry's collection of exclusive photos, the book also reveals Henry's lifelong struggle with addiction, his 'business' relationships that range from mob bosses to movie producers, and how, through everything, he survived.
