THE STORY: Jay and Tee are a couple of hit-men sitting by the ocean and reflecting on how their lives turned out. Their intended victim, Matt, awaits his fate in a burlap sack. When Al Capone visits in a dream, the outraged and desperate Matt gets dragged into refereeing the hit-men’s argument about the mob’s future. (3 men.)
“…truly inspired moments of comedy…[In] Edward Allan Baker’s MAFIA ON PROZAC, a pair of hit men, owing more to Tom Stoppard than to Mario Puzo, argue over such highfalutin’ issues as fate versus free will.” —The New York Times.

Included in the collection Up, Down, Strange, Charmed, Beauty, and Truth; Lila on the Wall; and Mafia on Prozac.
