The End of the Myth

The Sopranos & the American Dream
'The Sopranos' Ending & Tony Soprano's Fate Finally Revealed By Creator ...

Welcome to part two of my interview with culture critic Nick Braccia about his new book, Off the Back of a Truck: Unofficial Contraband for the Sopranos Fan. In this half, we delve into the characters of the HBO series and the actors who portrayed them; discuss the show’s renewed relevance to contemporary politics; and how, in many ways, The Sopranos represents the end not just of the gangster genre, but the end of the American Dream itself. We’ll get Nick’s take on all these topics, and hear stimulating excerpts from some of the book’s essays.
