Uncle Al Capone: Chapter 4 Exerpt - Chicago & All That Jazz

W. C. Fields said, “Once, during Prohibition, I had to live on nothing but food and water.”

It’s funny that a law passed twenty years before I was born had such an impact on my life. But if it hadn’t been for the thirteen years of Prohibition from 1920 to 1933, Al Capone would not have been infamous, my family would not have been noteworthy, and I would have led a very different existence.
