(I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review).

Making of the Godfather this is an eassy by Puzo on writing the book and the making of the movie. It is brief and witty. He talk about some of the rumours and assumptions of him and the movie. I am huge fan of the book, movie and Marlon Brando (sigh). This is a great quick essay for anyone into films, books, Puzo or the Godfather.
