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.

More About Mario Puzo
Mario Puzo was born on Manhattan's West Side in the neighborhood known as Hell's Kitchen. His first books, The Fortunate Pilgrim ("a minor classic" New York Times) and Dark Arena, brought him critical acclaim, but it was the publication of The Godfather in March 1969 that catapulted him into the front ranks of American authors. Reviewers hailed the book as "a staggering triumph" (Saturday Review), "big, turbulent, highly entertaining" (Newsweek), "remarkable" (Look), and "a voyeur's dream, a skillful fantasy of violent personal power" (New York Times). Winning readers by the millions, it stayed at or near the top of the New York Times bestseller lists for sixty-nine weeks. His follow-up novel, Fools Die (1978), was hailed as the publishing event of the decade. Puzo's last novel, Omerta, was finished shortly before his death in 1999.
Mario Puzo lived in Long Island, in the state of New York. Mario Puzo was born in 1920 and died in 1999.
