El siciliano es una biograf a novelada de Giuliano y una incisiva descripci n de la vida, las tradiciones y las complejas relaciones de poder en Sicilia.

Corre el a o 1950. El exilio de Michael Corleone en Palermo est a punto de acabar, y su padre, Don Vito, le ha encomendado una misi n: debe volver a Am rica con un hombre que se ha convertido en un mito popular, un forajido acosado por el Gobierno, las clases altas y la Mafia.

Su nombre es Salvatore Giuliano, un moderno Robin Hood que, tras enfrentarse en su juventud a una patrulla de carabineri, se vio forzado a refugiarse en las monta as. Desde all lucha por su patria y su gente, oprimida por la Cosa Nostra y la corrupci n del Go-bierno de Roma.

Ahora, en esta neblinosa tierra de monta as y ruinas antiguas, el destino de Michael Corleone se ver hermanado con la leyenda de Salvatore Giuliano.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Michael Corleone is returning to the U.S. after the two-year exile to Sicily in which reader left him in The Godfather. But he is ordered to bring with him the young Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Guiliano, who is the unofficial ruler of northwestern Sicily. In his fight "to make Sicilians free people," the young folk hero, based on the real-life Giuliano of the 1940's, has made both the police and the Mafia his enemies. So when Don Croce Malo, chief of the Sicilian Mafia, and the policemen who has been tracking Guiliano each offer to help Corleone find the elusive Robin Hood, betrayal seems inevitable. Mario Puzo has created a sequel to The Godfather that is every bit as compelling and dramatic. But The Sicilian is a distinct literary achievement in its historical inspiration and its vivid portrait of Sicilian peasant life.

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.
