Godfather by Mark Winegardner

Book Description

'The bloody victory of the Corleone Family was not complete,' begins the final chapter of Mario Puzo's "The Godfather", 'until a year of delicate manoeuvring established Michael Corleone as the most powerful Family chief in the United States.' "The Godfather: The Lost Years" takes place in the years 1955-65, but it is built upon the story of that 'year of delicate political manoeuvring' - and how, in winning the battle of that year, Michael Corleone set the stage to lose the war: the war to make the Family legitimate, the war to keep the Corleones supremely in power, the war to stay true to his father's wishes, the war to give not just his Family but his family a safe and happy life. "The Godfather: The Lost Years" is not just a sequel. A magnificent novel in its own right, by an acclaimed young American novelist, it traces the nexus of ambitious, audacious decisions that Michael Corleone implements, their ultimate failure, and, after the Family's literal and figurative years in the wilderness (of Las Vegas), Michael's literal, physical return to New York, and his attempts to regain control there.

Godfather's Revenge by Mark Winegardner Godfather's Revenge, Paperback (July 2007)

It is 1963 in New York, and things have never been better for the Corleones. They've taken out their Mafia rivals, and legitimised the Family. Outside the fortified building owned by Michael Corleone, newly undisputed Boss of Bosses, a parade of people wait to ask the great man for favours. Only one thing remains to be done.

Good Roots by Mark Winegardner Good Roots, Hardback (December 2006)

"A good place to be from." That's how some people might characterize the Buckeye State. This work features writings that are testimony to the truth of that statement. By prominent writers such as P J O'Rourke, Susan Orlean, and Alix Kates Shulman, it offers us a personal sense of place.
