Episode #127: Michael Imperioli

Emmy Award-winning actor Michael Imperioli joins the show to discuss his career coming up through the acting ranks, starring on The Sopranos, James Gandolfini, and a number of exciting new projects he just finished filming. In addition, Michael just released a new book titled, "The Perfume Burned His Eyes."

"Screenwriter and Emmy-winning actor Imperioli's first novel is the atmospheric coming-of-age story of 17-year-old Matthew, whose mother moves them from Queens to a posh apartment in Manhattan in 1976...Matt is not an atypical teenager--think Holden Caulfield without the cynicism--but, often afraid and awkward, he is a reactor, not an actor, until the end of the novel, which, without foreshadowing, comes as a harrowing surprise...Imperioli can definitely write, and he gets high marks for the verisimilitude and empathy that he evokes in this fine crossover novel." --Booklist, Starred Review
