Boardwalk Empire

HBO’s heavily-promoted addition to the New Jersey canon, Boardwalk Empire, began last night, sending the tie-in to #166 on Amazon sales rankings, from #366 the day before. The series continues for 12 more episodes, ending Dec. 12.

The book is an academic history, written by a NJ judge; the movie is “inspired by the book,” but is definitely fiction, even changing the name of the main character. Those who turn to the book, expecting the blood fest of the TV series will be disappointed.
