Item description for El padrino (Byblos: Narrativa) (Byblos: Narrativa) by Mario Puzo...

More than thirty years ago, a classic was born. A searing evocation of the Mafia underworld, this novel introduced readers to the first family of American crime fiction, the Corleones, and the powerful legacy of tradition, blood, and honor that would be passed on from father to son. The novel stands out due to its exquisitely detailed characters who, despite leading unconventional lifestyles within a notorious crime family, experience the triumphs and failures of the human condition. With its themes of the seduction of power, the pitfalls of greed, and family allegiance, this is the definitive gangster novel.

He continued to write phenomenally successful novels, Including Fools Die (1978), The Sicilian (1984), The Fourth K (1991), and The Last Don (1996). Mario Puzo died on July 2, 1999. His final novel, Omerta, was published in 2000.
