The Medium, The Message, and The Man: HBO's Nucky Thompson vs The Novel's Nucky Johnson

The Steve Buscemi characterization of Nucky Thompson in the HBO show

Boardwalk Empire is a lesser man than his print counterpart, Nucky

Stan . . . How nice to connect with you through CrimeSpace. My gosh, we set our stories in the same time period -- the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. Mine are in Kansas and Tennessee.
