I enjoyed this brief and concise non fiction book about Steve Bene, grandson of the "The King of the Gypsies," for the information it provided about Steve, his family, and the gypsies historically, and their life in America at the time of publication, 1976.

I enjoyed this brief and concise non fiction book about Steve Bene, grandson of the "The King of the Gypsies," for the information it provided about Steve, his family, and the gypsies historically, and their life in America at the time of publication, 1976. The movie based on this book, "King of the Gypsies" with Eric Roberts and Susan Sarandon (among other great actors and actresses) is a favorite of mine and I must have seen it five times over the years. I regard it as a great film. It was my last viewing of the film that prompted me to seek out the book. I'll be looking for more information on the history of the gypsies in America. Peter Maas was one fine writer.

Steve Tene Bimbo was 25yrs old when his grandfather
King Tene died. The grand father skipped over his
son (a fat gross slob) to give Steve the medallion
and the ring of kingship. This set off a war.

Gypsies are mostly known for their grift, scams and
cons but when called upon they can fight and kill too.
Several attempts are made on his life but he survives.
Read this book and see what happens.

Steve tells author Peter Maas that he wants to change
and he wants to change the way the gypsies live. The
book ends there and we do not know if he was successful.
The book is very very short. You can read it almost in
1 sitting. Some of the reviews are longer than the book.

I will preface this review by saying that I realize Peter Maas's book was written in 1978, and I am writing this review in 2012. But words--once they are written--will always bear weight. And stereotypes, unfortunately, will continue to exist unless they are challenged. While King of the Gypsies is well-researched (the author used actual news files to document his sources), it continues to promote the same familiar stereotypes of Gypsies. Again we see Gypsies portrayed as stealing, conniving, mafia-like people engaged in organized crime, fortune telling, and deadly tribal vendettas. While I do not doubt that this portrayal is supported in police records, I do wish the narrative had been better balanced. Not all Gypsies are thieves. Just like not all Italians belong to the Mafia. Nor all Muslims are extremists. I know intrigue is what sells books, but a little inclusion of alternative points of view/realities can make for even more interesting reading.
I had this book in Hard copy and it got lost some years ago,I love the book and will probably by another hardback, but the paper back will do for now.
