Unleash your inner Soprano and relive all of your favorite moments with this companion guide to the award-winning series The Sopranos.

We all know and love The Sopranos, one of the most important television dramas to ever hit the small screen having run for six seasons on HBO. The story of the Italian-American mobster Tony Soprano balancing his family life with his role as a leader of a criminal organization inspired decades of genre-bending "peak TV." Now Off the Back of a Truck: Contraband for the Sopranos Fan takes you one step further into the world of Tony Soprano and his family, offering an Italian potluck of fresh and fun takes that any true fan can get lost in for hours.

Off the Back of a Truck is for everyone who finds themselves glued to the TV during Sopranos marathons and still searches the best scenes on YouTube.

This book includes:

-New looks at everyone's favorite episodes, scenes, and characters: "The Pine Barrens," Big Pussy's death, and more

-All 86 deaths analyzed, evaluated, and ranked

-Reflections on the show's use of true crime, music, food, and fashion from critics and culture writers who are also huge fans

-Commentary from special guests, TV critics, and pop culture influencers
