Author(s): PUZO MARIO
In this sequel to "The Godfather", Don Corleone sends Michael, his son and successor, to Sicily to bring Salvatore Guiliano, a young bandit, back to America. Guiliano is a modern day Robin Hood in Sicily, who defies corruption and the Cosa Nostra. Now, Michael's fate is entwined with the ultimate "Siciliano".
"Puzo is a master storyteller."
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 bestselling novel The Godfather was preceded by two critically acclaimed novels, The Dark Arena and The Fortunate Pilgrim. In 1978, he published Fools Die, followed by The Sicilian, The Fourth K, and the second installment in his Mafia trilogy, The Last Don. Mario Puzo also wrote many screenplays, including those for Earthquake, Superman, and all three Godfather movies, for which he received two Academy Awards. He died in July 1999 at his home on Long Island, New York, at the age of seventy-eight, just after completing the manuscript of his novel, Omerta.
