The Godfather Papers

And Other Confessions
A non fiction book by

In March 1969 the world saw the emergence of one of the most dramatic, most read and discussed novels of this century, The Godfather. It became an instantaneous best-seller and its unprecedented English-language success, repeated worldwide, will be reinforced by the big-budget film starring Marlon Brando. The present work is highly personal, free-wheeling, and autobiographical. Here we find many intimate, amusing and startling disclosures about the author's life, Hollywood, gambling, the art of writing, the making of the Godfather film, food, sex and male chauvinism, etc. Mario Puzo answers many questions that his millions of readers are asking. We see him as the lonely, hardworking writer, the voracious reader, a father in the midst of a large family, a world traveller, an aficionado of the gambling casinos, a newcomer in and out of the Hollywood studios, playing tennis, enjoying pasta, trying to lose weight, at work on screenplays and his next novel. These and many ocher matters are touched upon in this most readable, entertaining, and very revealing book by one of America's most famous novelists.
