Introducing the AUDIBLE ORIGINAL Edition of the Cult Classic - CONVERSATION WITH JOHNNY, a Novel
Funny & powerful, this novel preceded the hit TV series THE SOPRANOS and the film ANALYZE THIS. “Not only that,” states the author, “it’s good.” Here, in JOHNNY, the mafia don is the therapist and a funny, scary one at that.

03 May, 2021 – Anthony Valerio, an author, editor, and teacher, has announced the release of the Audible Edition of Conversation with Johnny: a novel. A powerful yet funny novel, Conversation with Johnny fuses the dual cultural nature of the writer and the individual of power, or the local gangster, that many experienced in the old neighborhoods.

An invigorating tale that has impressed readers and critics alike, the 3-hour & 23-minute Audible Conversation with Johnny features Valerio’s signature imaginative writing style as he attempts to bring closure to the pervasive godfather myth. Valerio’s own voice adds an authentic recorded note to the project.

Critics are saying:

“The novel, like the Hudson, is intimately “local” in its quotidian contact with Italian-American culture in New York, but never loses contact with the ocean that lies beyond, and is quite at ease moving just as intimately across the Atlantic – and not only across space but across time – to various locales in Italy,” remarked Professor Eric Goldman in his five-star review of the novel. “And then there are the imaginary locales of Nicholas’s (the narrator’s) memory and desire, which add the third dimension of imagination to Valerio’s invented autobiography.”
