Read full description of the books El Siciliano:El exilio de dos anos en Sicilia de Michael Corleone, hijo de Don Vito, esta a punto de acabar, pero su padre le ha encomendado una mision: no debe volver a Estados Unidos si no es con Salvatore Giuliano. Giuliano es una autentica leyenda, un mito popular. En 1943, el joven Giuliano y su primo Gaspare Pisciotta se rebelaron contra una patrulla de carabinieri que los encontro traficando con alimentos. A raiz de aquello se refugiaron en las montanas y empezaron a luchar por los menesterosos sicilianos que se encontraban bajo el yugo de la Mafia y la corrupcion del Gobierno de Roma. Formaron una banda de forajidos y pronto se convirtieron en leyenda. En torno a 1948, la creciente popularidad de Giuliano empieza a preocupar al Capo di Capi, Don Croce Malo. ""Benevolente"", le hace creer que va a indultarlo y le tiende una trampa. Salvatore planea entonces una vendetta contra Don Croce, y asesinan a seis jefes de la Mafia local. Esa decision marca el comienzo del fin de la banda de Giuliano. Los crimenes de la banda de Giuliano resultaron un verdadero problema para el Gobierno de Roma. Salvatore aseguraba tener un documento que desvelaba los contactos del primer ministro con la Mafia local, de forma que el Gobierno creo las Fuerzas Especiales para la Represion del Bandidaje bajo las ordenes del Coronel Luca, que contaba con cinco mil hombres especializados. En 1950, Michael Corleone envia el documento incriminatorio a Estados Unidos, de forma que si Giuiliano es asesinado, pueda desenmascarar al ministro. Pero las traiciones estan tomando forma dentro de la banda, y Pisciotta, en el afan de garantizarse el futuro, acaba traicionando a su primo, que resulta muerto. Michael no podra hacer efectiva su amenaza de publicar el documento, ya que Don Vito ha pactado con Don Croce para que dejen salir a su hijo de la isla. Pisciotta murio envenenado en la prision donde cumplia condena, y en su bolsillo aparecio una nota que decia ""Asi mueren todos los que traicionan a Giuliano"
Read information about the authorPuzo was born in a poor family of Neapolitan immigrants living in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York. Many of his books draw heavily on this heritage. After graduating from the City College of New York, he joined the United States Army Air Forces in World War II. Due to his poor eyesight, the military did not let him undertake combat duties but made him a public relations officer stationed in Germany. In 1950, his first short story, The Last Christmas, was published in American Vanguard. After the war, he wrote his first book, The Dark Arena, which was published in 1955.
At periods in the 1950s and early 1960s, Puzo worked as a writer/editor for publisher Martin Goodman's Magazine Management Company. Puzo, along with other writers like Bruce Jay Friedman, worked for the company line of men's magazines, pulp titles like Male, True Action, and Swank. Under the pseudonym Mario Cleri, Puzo wrote World War II adventure features for True Action.
Puzo's most famous work, The Godfather, was first published in 1969 after he had heard anecdotes about Mafia organizations during his time in pulp journalism. He later said in an interview with Larry King that his principal motivation was to make money. He had already, after all, written two books that had received great reviews, yet had not amounted to much. As a government clerk with five children, he was looking to write something that would appeal to the masses. With a number one bestseller for months on the New York Times Best Seller List, Mario Puzo had found his target audience. The book was later developed into the film The Godfather, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The movie received 11 Academy Award nominations, winning three, including an Oscar for Puzo for Best Adapted Screenplay. Coppola and Puzo collaborated then to work on sequels to the original film, The Godfather Part II and The Godfather Part III.
Puzo wrote the first draft of the script for the 1974 disaster film Earthquake, which he was unable to continue working on due to his commitment to The Godfather Part II. Puzo also co-wrote Richard Donner's Superman and the original draft for Superman II. He also collaborated on the stories for the 1982 film A Time to Die and the 1984 Francis Ford Coppola film The Cotton Club.
Puzo never saw the publication of his penultimate book, Omertà, but the manuscript was finished before his death, as was the manuscript for The Family. However, in a review originally published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Jules Siegel, who had worked closely with Puzo at Magazine Management Company, speculated that Omertà may have been completed by "some talentless hack." Siegel also acknowledges the temptation to "rationalize avoiding what is probably the correct analysis -- that [Puzo] wrote it and it is terrible."
Puzo died of heart failure on July 2, 1999 at his home in Bay Shore, Long Island, New York. His family now lives in East Islip, New York.
