Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read Con El Padrino, Mario Puzo consiguio crear un genero.

Novela sobre la Mafia, protagonizada por Vito Corleone, que revoluciono el mundo literario con su publicacion en 1969.

La publicacion de El Padrino en 1969 convulsiono el mundo literario. Por primera vez, la Mafia protagonizaba una novela y era retratada desde dentro. Mario Puzo la presentaba no como una mera asociacion de facinerosos, sino como una compleja sociedad con una cultura propia y una jerarquia aceptada incluso mas alla de los circulos de la delincuencia.

El Padrino narra la historia de un hombre, Vito Corleone, el capo mas respetado de Nueva York. Despota benevolente, implacable con sus rivales, inteligente y fiel a los principios del honor y la amistad. Don Corleone dirige un emporio que abarca el fraude y la extorsion, los juegos de azar y el control de los sindicatos.

La vida y negocios de Don Corleone, asi como los de su hijo y heredero Michael, conforman el eje de esta magistral obra.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Mario Puzo's classic saga of an American crime family that became a global phenomenon--nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

With its brilliant and brutal portrayal of the Corleone family, The Godfather burned its way into our national consciousness. This unforgettable saga of crime and corruption, passion and loyalty continues to stand the test of time, as the definitive novel of the Mafia underworld.

A #1 New York Times bestseller in 1969, Mario Puzo's epic was turned into the incomparable film of the same name, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture. It is the original classic that has been often imitated, but never matched. A tale of family and society, law and order, obedience and rebellion, it reveals the dark passions of human nature played out against a backdrop of the American dream.

Mario Puzo

Mario Puzo was born in New York and, following military service in World War II, attended New York's New School for Social Research and Columbia University.

His best-selling novel The Godfather was preceded by two critically acclaimed novels, The Dark Arena (1955) and The Fortunate Pilgrim (1965). In 1978 he published Fools Die, followed by The Sicilian (1984), The Fourth K (1991), and the second instalment in his Mafia trilogy, The Last Don (1996), which became an international bestseller.

Mario Puzo also wrote many screenplays, including Earthquake, Superman, and all three Godfather films, for which he received two Academy Awards. He died in July 1999 at his home in Long Island, New York, at the age of seventy-eight.
