More Information
Mario Puzo, born 15 October 1920 and died 1999 was American born and bred. The son of Italian immigrants who suffered the depression. He joined the army at the onset of World War II, seeing it as a way out of impoverishment and spent four years serving in Europe. He is known, most notably of course, for The Godfather. The book has sold in excess of 20 million copies worldwide and the subsequent films have been a phenomenon. The book took three years to research and write and saved the author from his gambling induced financial problems. The book is the most collectable title of his, American editions precede their English counterparts in all cases and there are no alternative titles. Later books were subject to huge print runs, added to that being regarded as disappointing in quality, they are available for modest sums in 1st edition status. The Godfather does remain a cornerstone title however, the American edition being worth substantially more the the British. As so often with modern firsts, near fine should be the minimum required condition.
