For decades, scandalous rumors and sensational tabloid headlines have obscured the truth about one the most famous and intriguing families in modern history: the real players, the real relationships, behind the closed doors of the Gotti dynasty.

Until now. Here at last is the explosive memoir that captures the Gottis as they are-unvarnished, raw, and real. And who better to tell this no-hold-barred story than their most famous daughter? Victoria Gotti never intended to reveal the inside story of the Gotti household, but with the pressing need to finally set the record straight came the realization that only she can do so, once and for all. Daughter to the late John Gotti, sister to John A. "Junior" Gotti and three other siblings, single mother to three sons with whom she shared reality television stardom on Growing Up Gotti, an outspoken columnist and bestselling author, Victoria Gotti delivers a candid, colorful, and brutally honest family portrait that reads like a confidential file, filled with deeply personal reflections and never-before-published photographs.

With the trial of "Junior" Gotti poised to continue the high drama of the Gotti story, fascination with the icons of this only-in-New-York clan is stronger than ever. Victoria Gotti's bombshell revelations and stunning insider secrets make This Family of Mine the essential chronicle in the ultimate American family saga.
