In this entertaining and insightful essay, Mario Puzo chronicles his rise from struggling writer to overnight success after the publication of The Godfather.
With equal parts cynicism and humor, Puzo recounts the book deal and his experiences in Hollywood while writing the screenplay for the movie. Francis Ford Coppola, Robert Evans, Peter Bart, Marlon Brando, and Al Pacino all make appearances - as does Frank Sinatra, in his famous and disastrous encounter with Puzo.
First published in 1972, the essay is now available as an audiobook for the first time. A must-have for every Godfather fan!
Featuring a foreword by Ed Falco, author of The Family Corleone.
