Although his life story mirrors the plot of an entire film genre, mobster-turned-government witness Andrew DiDonato doesn’t want you to think he’s a hero (or even a glamorous anti-hero). Instead, with his new biography, Surviving the Mob: A Street Soldier’s Life Inside the Gambino Crime Family (Huntington Press, $16) by Dennis Griffin, he simply wants to “lay it all out there and let you see what life as a mob associate is like from the inside.” The book comes out at the end of the month, just in time for Clark County Library’s January “Mob Month” (see LVCCLD.org/events for book signings).
