About This Book
Winegardner's sequel to The Godfather is a fitting tribute to Puzo's darkly
comic, bravura storytelling, paying due respect to the mythic grandeur of the
Corleones in an engrossing saga that ranges from the corridors of power to the
catacombs of Palermo. It should be a big earner. Focusing on the five years
between the end of Puzo's novel and the opening of Coppola's Godfather II,
Winegardner fills a vast canvas with historical flourishes and likenesses.
A-bomb tests wow rooftop swingers in Vegas, where Sinatra makes his comeback as
a mature balladeer and chafes at his Cosa Nostra ties even while using them to
help elect Kennedy. In the foreground, new and familiar figures negotiate, plot,
and counterplot with all the vigor, panache, and dexterity of Shakespeare's
Richard III. Pathetic Fredo plummets recklessly toward his fate, tormented by
secret shame, while soldato Nick Geraci whistles his way through the valley of
death. Stoic Tom Hagen vies for the banal evils of elected office, and Sonny's
daughter Francesca revisits the sins of her father. Running like a chill down
the spine of this sprawling narrative is the silent menace of Michael, a
consummate Machiavelli forged by war and thwarted by peace. Dripping with blood
and cappuccino, this meaty, charismatic epic of hard-won power, lost honor, and
grim brio deserves a hearing from Puzo's legion of fans. Highly recommended.
