About The Author:
Mario Gianluigi Puzo (/ËˆpuËzoÊŠ/; Italian: [ËˆmaËrjo Ëˆpuddzo]; October 15, 1920 â€“ July 2, 1999) was an American author, screenwriter and journalist. He is known for his crime novels about the Mafia, most notably The Godfather (1969), which he later co-adapted into a three-part film saga directed by Francis Ford Coppola. He received the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the first film in 1972 and Part II in 1974. Puzo also wrote the original screenplay for the 1978 Superman film. His last novel, The Family, was released posthumously in 2001.
About The Book:
The Godfather is Vito Corleone, a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power. He is a friendly man, a "reasonable" man, a just man -- and the deadliest gang leader in the Cosa Nostra.
The Godfather's command post is a fortress on Long Island. From it he rules a vast empire of extortion, gambling, bookmaking and unions. He bends cops, bureaucrats, politicians...and he does it without ever touching a gun or knife or even making a threat.
