About this title


efore The Godfather and The Last Don, there was Puzo's classic story about the loves, crimes and struggles confronted by one family of New York City immigrants living in Hell's Kitchen. Fresh from the farms in Italy, Lucia Santa struggles to hold her family together in a strange land. At turns poignant, comic and violent, and with a new preface by the author, The Fortunate Pilgrim is Italian-American fiction at its very best.

From the Back Cover:

"A classic . . . The novel is lifted into literature by its highly charged language, its penetrating insights, and its mixture of tenderness and rage."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A beautiful book with perfect sentences, a book that could have put Puzo on track to be the Italian Malamud or Henry Roth."
--New York magazine

"An accomplished and imaginative writer."
--Los Angeles Times

"It reads almost as a prequel to The Godfather. . . . [with] the same endearing style that makes almost any Puzo book difficult to put down."
--Detroit News and Free Press
