I thought we could talk about Mafia Books here.


I recently re-read the Sicilian by Puzo, it is one of my favorite books.

Its about a young man who rebels against both the Mafia and the Government and becomes a Robin Hood style thief

I had read the book several times, thinking it was pure fiction, as it was written in a fiction style, but it turned out to be absolutely true.....except for the haphazard insertion of the Corleone's here and there.

I am a fan of Puzo, but more so of Copalla's interpretation of Puzo...but how do get away with writing a novel that is 90% based on truth, even to the point of not changing names.....Puzo was good at taking the real, making it a story then slightly changing the names with The Godfather...but wow


But it does make me like the book even more knowing that there was a Turi and he was fighting the system...real time, real place


The Real Salvatorre (Turi) Giulliano

All of Puzo's work is great. My favourites would have to be...

The Godfather (of course Wink )

The Last Don

And, Omerta.
