The Bull's Daughter Writing Book About Mafia Life

A man who needs no introduction.
Karen Gravano, the daughter of infamous mob turncoat Sammy (The Bull) Gravano, has inked a book deal to pen a tell-all about her life growing up in a Mafia family, according to the New York Post.

The deal with St. Martin's Press is for six figures, according to the report.

Karen, 38, will write about growing up in a Mafia enclave on Staten Island as the daughter of one of the mob's "most feared executioners," including how her life changed after Sammy testified and entered the witness protection program, and "went to prison in order to protect Karen and her brother," St. Martin's told the Post. [Is that before or after they were all selling the E? --Edit. note.]

Sammy Gravano received leniency for testifying against mob boss John Gotti: He served five years in prison before moving to Arizona in 1995 under the federal witness protection program.

In 2000, the elder Gravano was busted again for running a multimillion-dollar ecstasy ring near Phoenix and sentenced to 19 years in prison.

Karen Gravano pleaded guilty to charges related to her father's drugs operation and was sentenced to probation.


  1. gravano beats another mark. a dumb publisher. the mob is a mans world. the bull is garbage and his daughter don't know nothing. this beehive wearing wannabee is gonna pass off street corner gossip as fact. she was a kid when her father licked gotti's balls. now too old to spread her legs she now wants to open her mouth. garbage in-garbage out

  2. "Karen, 38, will write about growing up in a Mafia enclave on Staten Island" -- that S.I. enclave is given a lot of play in all the early promo material, which leads me to think this is going to be a "growing up in a mob family on Staten Island," memoir rather than a book about Sammy Bull -- probably similar to the crap in the Victoria Gotti book. "Dad always made sure we had Sunday dinner together, until the dog came in the house one day with a hand in its mouth," yada yada yada.

  3. It is a very hard life to live as a child of a father who is in the Mafia! You are very much loved and protected but you do not know why all the protection until you get older and you start putting all the little pieces together.
