Product Details


“One finishes his book with a greater appreciation for the hard work that goes into making art on the screen.” — The Wall Street Journal

An “absolutely wonderful memoir … Although this book will definitely appeal to Sopranos fans, it should also interest readers who enjoy a well-written, entertaining book about how movies and television shows get made. In an increasingly crowded genre, this is one of the best.” Booklist (starred review)

“An engrossing, unique look at one man’s journey through the production of film and TV.” Kirkus Reviews

“This tale will grab readers from the first to the last page. It’s an interesting take on what went into making The Sopranos, the Rolls Royce of cable TV.”Library Journal

“The material is eye opening, sometimes humorous, and always interesting.”

“A delightfully wry, frank, funny and generous account of the hard labor that goes into film and TV production, it not only takes us behind the scenes but into the alert, cultivated, observant mind of Mark Kamine. It’s so well-written I found it stimulating and a pleasure to read.” Phillip Lopate 

“Location managers are the diplomats, finaglers and flak-catchers of the film and TV business, dealing with public officials, star-struck fans and the often unreasonable expectations of their employers- think Henry Kissinger with a bolt-cutter in the trunk of his Nissan.  Mark Kamine has shared an honest and very personal report from the trenches.” — John Sayles
