Reviews

"History meets art! A riveting tale about the man who created organized crime--Lang's story brings Meyer's legacy to life!"
"a thrilling, funny, and touching alternate history..."
"A different kind of gangster tale... Meyer is both funny and thoughtful, a story about aging, self-fulfillment, friendship, and legacies."
"Deftly written by Los Angeles-based author and filmmaker Jonathan Lang (Feeding Ground) ...This is a 120-page, darkly comedic coming-of-age quest stuffed full of hardcore Breaking Bad-style imagery amid a fictional biography of the legendary Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky as he attempts to organize his very last caper."
