On January 10, 1999, a mobster walked into a psychiatrist’s office and changed TV history. HBO’s The Sopranos is not only one of the greatest television shows ever produced, but one of the most influential. The Sopranos Sessions is the ultimate insider’s guide to this groundbreaking series. This must-read is co-authored by Matt Zoller Seitz, television critic for New York magazine, editor in chief of RogerEbert.com, and the author of Mad Men Carousel and The Wes Anderson Collection and Alan Sepinwall, chief television critic for Rolling Stone and the author of Breaking Bad 101. His thoughts on television have appeared in the New York Times, Time, and Variety. 

As the TV critics for Tony Soprano’s hometown paper, New Jersey’s Star-Ledger, Sepinwall and Seitz had inside access to the cast and crew and were among the first to cover the show before it became a cultural phenomenon. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the show’s debut, they  reunited to produce the recently published The Sopranos Sessions, which features critical essays on every single episode, followed by a series of new, long-form interviews with series creator David Chase, discussing the events (on- and off-screen) of each season, plus a rare 1999 interview with James Gandolfini.
