Bugsy Siegel: The Dark Side of the American Dream
Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue
In a brief life that led to a violent end, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel rose from desperate poverty to ill-gotten riches, from an early-twentieth-century family of Ukrainian-Jewish immigrants on the Lower East Side to a kingdom of his own making in Las Vegas. In this captivating portrait, author Michael Shnayerson sets out not to absolve Bugsy Siegel, but rather to understand him in all his complexity.
