Three Little Pigs

1 Mins read

Apostolos Doxiadis Three Little PigsApostolos Doxiadis used to write graphic novels, but here brings a fresh take on mafia revenge, told from the perspective of a mysterious old man. When a man in old Brooklyn kills another in a drunken brawl, it turns out the victim is the local mob boss’ only son. The enraged don delivers a devastating curse: each of the man’s three sons will die in their 42nd year. As the eldest’s birthday approaches, is there a killer out there biding his time to deliver the maledizione? The son and the reader are victims of the suspense-filled narrative of an old man, whose humorously deadpan delivery belies a very wild ride ahead. Read my review here.
