**With an exclusive introduction by Francis Ford Coppola**

Tyrant, blackmailer, racketeer, murderer - his influence reaches every level of American society. Meet Don Corleone, a friendly man, a just man, a reasonable man. The deadliest lord of the Cosa Nostra. The Godfather.

A modern masterpiece, The Godfather is a searing portrait of the 1940s criminal underworld. It is also the intimate story of the Corleone family, at once drawn together and ripped apart by its unique position at the core of the American Mafia. Mario Puzo's compelling tale of blackmail, murder and family values is a true classic, and remains just as shocking fifty years after it was first published.

This special anniversary edition is a must-have for admirers of the novel and essential reading for fans of the timeless film adaptations.

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.
