The electrifying true story of the rise and fall of New York's notorious Bonanno crime family

On New York's Park Avenue on a rainy Tuesday night in October 1964, the famous Mafia chieftain Joseph Bonanno was kidnapped by two mobsters and reported by the police as dead on the following morning. More than a year later, Bonanno mysteriously reappeared, setting off a bloody mob feud that came to be known as the “Banana War.”

In this monumental work—packed with intimate details and brilliant reporting—bestselling author Gay Talese first brought to the American consciousness a world and a life previously known to only a few. No other book has done more to acquaint readers with the secrets, structure, wars, power plays, family lives, and fascinating, frightening personalities of the Mafia.

Acabo de ver que se ha publicado el nuevo libro de Gay Talese lo que me ha traido a la memoria esta joya.Para cualquier aficionado a las películas de la mafia este libro es imprescindible. Talese descubrió en este libro los secretos de la mafia tras infiltrarse durante seis años en la familia Bonnano lo que le costó estar amenazado de muerte como le ocurriría unas décadas después a Roberto Saviano. Está escrito como si fuera una novela y una vez que empiezas no lo puedes dejar hasta que lo terminas. Este libro fue inspiración para la famosa serie de Los Soprano. Le doy "solo" 4 estrellas por la comparación con las obras maestras a las que otorgo 5 pero para mi un libro sin duda muy recomendable aunque hayan pasado 40 años desde su publicación.

Suelo reseñar obras que se denominan como 'no-ficción', y se refiere a todas las obras creadas por reporteros y periodistas, escritas con técnicas literarias, pero completamente basadas en hechos reales documentados y comprobables. En la época en que se publicó el grandísimo reportaje A sangre fría de Truman Capote en 1965, empezaba la investigación de este libro, que si bien no tiene nada que ver con la temática de la novela de Capote, tiene los ingredientes para ser un gran libro de culto.



Honrarás a tu padre es un reportaje, que si bien su tiempo cronológico es entre 1964 a 1971, también narra el pasado de los silicianos que inmigraron a Estados Unidos a finales del siglo XIX, que llenaron varias zonas de la ciudad de Nueva York y constituyeron barrios italianos. Toma como punto de foco una familia en particular, la familia Bonnano e inicia con la figura de su patriarca, nacido en Castellamare del Golfo, Silicia y que se convirtió en unos de los cinco Don de la mafia más importantes de la ciudad: Joseph Bonnano, llamado en la prensa como Joe Bananas.

Este libro es sobre la mafia italiana en Estados Unidos. Cómo comenzó y cómo decayó en el país, y la lucha que tuvieron que llevar los miembros de las familias para desafiar a la justicia y seguir con sus negocios. El punto de partida de la historia se centra en un hombre, uno que el gran reportero Gay Talese encontró en el momento preciso para escribir su historia y la de su familia. Salvatore Bonnano, más conocido como 'Bill' es el hijo mayor de Joseph, patriarca de la organización Bonnano, y es el punto de partida de esta historia, donde él tendrá que lidiar con el peligro y la incertidumbre del entorno de la mafia luego de la desaparición misteriosa de su padre, una noche lluviosa de 1964.

What I love about Gay Talese: his purely journalistic style. Honor Thy Father (1971) told the story of Bill Bonanno, the son of Mafia boss Joe Bonanno. His "fly on the wall" approach was put to the test by the fact that during the six years Talese followed Bonanno, there were long periods when his father was in hiding and Bonanno Jr. was the target of Mafia hitmen. Mr. Talese's insight will do more to help us understand the criminal than any amount of moral recrimination.

Honor Thy Father by Gay Talese is a well written and reported literary journalism novel about the Mafia. The author has evidently collected a huge amount of research about each incident and character in the novel. The book introduces readers to the tough, exciting world of the Mafia.
Aside from the chapters in the novel, Talese has included a foreword, author's note, and glossary of characters and a couple of phrases to help the reader. There is also a set of pictures to let the reader visualize the characters and a family tree showing each member of the Bonanno family, their birth dates, and death dates. The author's foreword is about how Honor Thy Father came to be and includes a bit about Talese's own life. The author's note is a detailed, interesting account of his experiences researching for the novel with information about meeting the Bonanno family.
The Bonnano family is a crime family from New York. Joseph Bonanno, a Mafia chief, was regarded as among the top American Mafia bosses. His wife, Fay Bonanno, was a sister of Frank Labruzzo, a captain of the Joseph Bonanno organization. Joseph's son Salvatore Bonanno, known as Bill Bonanno, respects Joseph. Bill's wife, Rosalie Bonanno, grew up sheltered in a convent school in upstate New York as Rosalie Profaci. These are only a few of the many characters in the novel.
The story starts off when Joseph Bonanno is kidnapped on Park Avenue near Thirty-Sixth Street. This was witnessed by William P. Maloney, his lawyer. This action packed crime scene is followed by Bill Bonanno in his apartment house with Frank Labruzzo. Bill, Frank, and others from the Joseph Bonanno organization are hiding in small buildings in New York, a concept that Talese brings up in this scene. The reason to live this cautious, suspenseful lifestyle is an internal feud between leaders of the Mafia.
Talese's quick explanations of characters in the glossary are not nearly enough to explain all his research. In each chapter, he gives detailed explanations about certain characters in between the plot. This is quite useful for readers to further understand what's going on in the story and is put in appropriate paragraphs for the most part.
Gay Talese starts off many of the chapters with a new character in a new setting. This defined separation can be useful to enhance readers' understanding of the events. Everything about the plot, setting, and characters is precise, yet most of it is interesting and captivating. He also makes good use of descriptions by placing them after quotes from dialog. Talese uses certain elements in his writing style such as suspense, flow, and irony to give the reader a sense that it is well written and interesting to read.
Honor Thy Father is not only a fascinating book, but it also teaches readers more about the Mafia lifestyle by turning the conflicts of the Bonanno family into an interesting literary journalism novel. This book is highly recommended by Newsweek, Nicholas Pileggi (author of Wiseguy), and many others.

I read this book back in the '70s right around the time I was reading Puzo's Fortunate Pilgrim and The Godfather. Sylvester Stallone was my hero; I wore a gold horn around my neck and had Italian Regional Cooking by Alda Boni on the shelf in the kitchen.

Sure, I was probably a great big pain in the ass back then, but it hardly mattered to me because I wasn't all that self-aware, either. The '70s were a great time to be alive...

Auge y caída de una de las familias más importantes del crímen organizado. Un relato lleno de contrastes y cuestionamientos acerca de las tradiciones y la identidad de los herederos de aquellos inmigrantes que cruzaron un océano en busca de nuevas oportunidades. Ingresamos al mundo de los negocios turbios, del precio que tienen la lealtad y el secreto, lo fuerte que llega a pesar una familia y cómo un gobierno hará lo imposible por limpiar de su territorio a aquellos que infrinjan la ley.

Gay Talese is a great writer, but man, he needed an editor on this book. It's far too long for a largely personal tale of the mafia. That said, Talese's insight into the Bonanno family makes you realize that the Godfather is so accurate that it's frightening. I am glad that I read this book, but I don't think I would recommend it to anyone who isn't really interested in Talese or the mob.

One of the things that made The Sopranos such an excellent television show was depicting the banality of mafia life. Yes, there are hits and double crosses and informants and affairs but Tony Soprano was largely a negligent husband and sometime father who suffered from physical and psychological ailments, dealt with obnoxious relatives, and just tried to make it in the day-to-day.

In the 1960s, when people were still associating Italian-Americans with the mafia, Gay Talese wanted to tell this story through the eyes of Bill Bonanno, son of Five Families crime boss Joseph Bonanno. I'm listing it as "true crime" because there are crimes (the Bonannos are a crime family, no matter how much Talese tries to paint over this) but by and-large, this is a tale of a family in transition. Bill trying to follow in his father's steps but unsure of the why or if he should; Joseph growing disenchanted with the industry that made him so successful and which is proving impossible to reform; Rosalie, Bill's mafia princess wife who is paying the consequences for her family and her husband's family sheltering her from the nature of their respective jobs.

In order to tell this tale, Talese had access that had to be unparalleled in that era of mafia secrecy. There's no way men like Carlo Gambino or Chin Gigante were going to let a reporter anywhere near their respective situations. The result is a complete, frequently fascinating, occasionally tedious portrayal of a family in transition. A family that just happens to revolve around the business of crime.

This isn't loved by mob aficionados and I can see why. Talese has no interest in telling a pulpy tale of gentlemen gangster a la The Godfather. This one is far more accurate. If you can suffer Talese's lengthy descriptions of traveling, meals, and legality, you may appreciate this one.

Esta es una excelente y detallada crónica sobre una de las familias más importantes en el crimen organizado, la familia Bonanno.

Cometí el error de iniciar la lectura de este libro a finales del año pasado en medio de una época difícil y con muchos temas pendientes por resolver. Lo hice solo para satisfacer mi curiosidad pero lamentablemente los primeros capítulos no lograron engancharme en ese momento; me gustaría pensar que vivía un tanto distraída en ese entonces.

Decidí reiniciar la lectura en tiempos de pandemia y ahí si logré ponerme al corriente de esta maravillosa historia. Gay Talese es un excelente cronista y explica cómo cultivó durante años una relación estrecha con la familia Bonanno, especialmente con Salvatore (Bill), para poder recoger los testimonios necesarios que serían la base de este libro, un libro que buscaba en primer lugar, mostrar lo que no mostraba la prensa de la época: sus dinámicas familiares, sus relaciones con amigos y vecinos, sus expectativas y sus motivaciones.

Era bastante común en los años 70s que no se supiera en detalle sobre cómo eran las familias italoamericanas que hacían parte del crímen organizado, es por esto que Talese convirtió esta obra en un best seller; principalmente porque este es un libro que no trataba una historia ficticia (como era el caso de "El Padrino" de Mario Puzo publicado en 1969), este era un material que contenía datos reales y testimonios de hechos transcurridos en territorio estadounidense con una antesala fuertemente italiana; esta historia se volvió referente para historias parecidas como "Los Soprano" y abrió la puerta a muchas otras crónicas que vendrían después.

Altamente recomendado para quienes disfrutan de historias reales llenas de detalles.

"Aunque se comportaban con la misma humildad de otros hombres del pueblo, proyectaban seguridad en sí mismos, una cierta fuerza de carácter. Eran más ambiciosos, más astutos, más osados, tal vez más escépticos frente a la vida que sus resignados paesani, que confiaban plenamente en Dios. Otros hombres solían hablar de ellos en susurros, pero nunca los llamaban mafiosi. Por lo general se referían a ellos como los amici, amigos, o les decían uomini rispettati, hombres respetables."

Talese, col suo stile impeccabile, ci porta nel mondo della mafia italo-americana, narrando l'ascesa e il declino della famiglia Bonanno.
La storia si apre con presunto rapimento di Joseph, nato Giuseppe e soprannominato Joe Bananas, uno dei cinque boss di New York.
Tutto il peso della famiglia ricade sulle spalle del figlio Salvatore, detto Bill, sposato a Rosalie Profaci, figlia di Salvatore Profaci e nipote di Joseph, altro importante capo-cosca.
Il giornalista del New York Times avvicina Bill durante la convocazione del gran giurì affinché spieghi la scomparsa del padre. Chiarisce che non vuole dichiarazioni, ma che vorrebbe scrivere un libro sulla sua infanzia.
Dopo parecchie telefonate e lettere all'avvocato di Bonanno, riesce ad ottenere un incontro, a cena in una steak house sulla Second Avenue. Talese è colpito dalla memoria formidabile di Bill, specie per i dettagli e per le ricostruzioni minuziose di scene, dialoghi e stati d'animo. Leggendo, mi sono chiesta spesso come avesse potuto ricostruire anche le emozioni dei protagonisti, rimanendo perplessa e sospettando un' interferenza romanzata dell'autore, smentita dalla nota dell'autore al termine del libro.
Da questo primo incontro nasce una fiducia tale da permettere al giornalista di assistere alle riunioni, di partecipare e descrivere la vita dall'interno, diventando anche una valvola di comunicazione: i membri della famiglia, abituati alla "regola del silenzio", dicevano al giornalista cose che volevano rendere note a terzi.

Gay Talese è uno dei precursori del New Journalism, dove i fatti vengono esposti in modo nuovo e molto vicino al genere narrativo, riuscendo a catturare l'attenzione del lettore.
La forte presenza di dialoghi, la presentazione dei fatti dal punto di vista dei protagonisti, con le loro emozioni e i loro pensieri, rendono avvincente la lettura. Ma la vera grandezza del giornalista, sta nel rimanere distaccato e offrire la cronaca così com'è, senza mai intaccarla col proprio giudizio, positivo o negativo che sia.

El libro relata la historia de Salvatore Bonanno, de una manera particular, por que no es la vida del crimen, es mas bien la vida personal de este mafioso, sus relaciones con sus hijos, esposa, padres, herman@s etc. Debo de reconocer que cuando lo compre esperaba adentrarme en el mundo de la Cosa Nostra un poco y conocer a fondo sus secretos, y si eso es lo que esperas, no te recomiendo este libro, pero si estas buscando una mirada a lo que es la vida personal de un miembro y capo di tuti capo de una las 5 familias de NY, ampliar tus conocimientos de las esctructuras, la forma en que funciona la cosa nostra, como se relacionaba con la sociedad no criminal que le rodeaba, con los politicos y la policia y deseas revalidar que holywood esta completamente equivocado, entonces este es tu libro.

Esta bien documentado, e investigado, el autor recibio el testimonio de Salvatore Bonanno luego de muchas conversaciones con el, que al final lo llevaron a entablar una relacion de amistad con el capo. Que creo que influye bastante en la imagen que nos plantea el periodista sobre lo que es la personalidad y la vida de este mafiosi.

One of the mainstays in the genre of organized crime, it is a large book that says very little.

Author Gay Talese is talented in writting up oral histories. To this end, he explores the thoughts and emotions of Bill Bonanno as he sought to aide his father in running a Mafia family. However, from such an obviously biased source, the text carries some credibility issues.

Much of the book adds little or nothing to the autobiography of Joe Bonanno. Like "A Man od Honor," this book complains loudly of the injustices by law enforcement against the family. However, most outside observers can recognize that father and son are leaving out considerable detail regarding their lives of crime. Furthermore, it is clear that Bill Bonanno was not respected by people within his father's family. His knowledge of events in the so-called Bannana War are marginal and at parts unbelieveable.

Cuenta la historia de una familia que estaba dentro de la Mafia italiana, en EEUU en los años '60 y '70. Cómo es la vida de estos hombres y mujeres, que principios están obligados a seguir y acatar, y cuáles leyes pueden quebrar para cumplir sus propósitos.
Libro de no ficción, historia verdadera no novelada, donde le protagonista luego escribe su biografía y antes de que se editara este libro, lee el ya editado El Padrino, donde consideraba bastante creíbles a la mayoría de sus personajes.
Buena historia, con acción, suspenso y un desenlace previsible pero creíble.
Supongo que cuando a cualquier persona le preguntan sobre la Mafia y los libros, lo primero que le suele acudir al pensamiento es El Padrino, la celebérrima novela de Mario Puzo. Pero eso no significa que no haya habido otros grandes libros que giran en torno a tan apasionante temática y que resultan tanto o más apasionantes. Uno de ellos, (publicado en la misma época que El Padrino) es Honrarás a tu padre, escrito por el periodista Gay Talese.
A grandes rasgos, podríamos decir que Honrarás a tu padre es la crónica de las andanzas de una de las famosas Cinco Familias de la Mafia neoyorquina, los Bonnano, cuando esta organización —por lo demás relativamente “tranquila” según los estándares mafiosos— estaba atravesando momentos convulsos. Más concretamente, el libro se centra en torno a Joe Bonanno, primer capo y patriarca de la familia, y su hijo Salvatore “Bill” Bonanno. Pero al contrario que El Padrino —novela inspirada en hechos reales pero concebida como ficción, el libro de Talese describe personajes reales y sucesos verídicos. Curiosamente, esto no hace que el texto tenga el tono de un ensayo o de un trabajo periodístico. Más bien al contrario, Honrarás a tu padre produce en el lector la sensación de estar ante una novela (y muy entretenida) aunque todo cuanto se narre en ella sea producto de una costosa investigación periodística del autor. Gay Talese entrevistó extensivamente a varios de los miembros de la familia Bonanno que protagonizan la historia, con quienes mantuvo un estrecho contacto hasta el punto de que Talese llegó a temer que los enemigos de los Bonanno lo confundiesen con un “asociado” y pudiera terminar sufriendo las consecuencias.
En resumen, Honrarás a tu padre es una lectura exquisita y muy adictiva. Imprescindible, ni que decir tiene, para cualquier aficionado a la historia de la Mafia. También imprescindible, por descontado, para quien haya disfrutado con El Padrino o The Sopranos. Y, por qué no, absolutamente recomendable para cualquiera que —independientemente de su interés previo en la temática— quiera pasar unos muy buenos ratos enfrascado en la absorbente lectura. Se puede leer como ensayo costumbrista o como novela trepidante.

Actually a 3.5 star book. The story starts off on a very interesting note with the alleged kidnapping of Mafia don Joe Bonanno in 1964 and follows the effects that this had on both his real family and his criminal "family." Later we get a history of the Mafia in both Sicily and the US, and some background on Joe's son Bill, who is the primary source for the book. However, at about the halfway point, things start to slow down. Talese (who seems to have been an eyewitness to many events) begins describing very ordinary activities (family dinners, music lessons, spousal arguments) in extremely tedious detail. If his intent was to show that Mafia dons live lives that are just about as boring as the average person then he certainly succeeded but I think it more likely that much of this is just padding. Add to that a general attitude on Talese's part that often seems entirely too sympathetic to the Bonanno family and their lifestyle and you get a book that is less than satisfying. I recommend it if you have an interest in the subject but it's definitely not something that has to go to the top of your reading list.

Me esperava más de este libro después de leer las críticas. Me enganchó más el libro de “el Irlandes” que es de la misma época y que leí hace poco.
El libro a veces se me ha hecho pesado, entrando mucho en detalle en algunas escenas para mi de forma innecesaria mientras que por otro lado no detalla demasiado los negocios, ordenes y decisiones que toman en la guerra entre familias. Además, a veces es un poco confuso todo los nombres italianos, familias, etc
Pero si que es verdad que ofrece una fotografia de la vida familiar, de las dificultades de su dia a dia y del poco glamour de la mafia. También ofrece una visión histórica y su conexión con Sicilia. Para mi fue interesante el epílogo en la que explica la relación del autor con el protagonista, las ultimas décadas (1972-2010) de la familia Bonano, la evolución de los hijos y el peso de llevar el apellido Bonano.
Leyendo el libro he recordado bastante a la serie “Los Soprano”.
En definitiva, libro recomendable pero no excepcional para conocer el mundo de la mafia.

I was torn on this. Based on actual events when Gay Talese was given unprecedented access to the mafia through Bill Bonanno, the son of Joe "Bananas" Bonanno, the head of one of the five families of New York. It reads like a report, since Talese was originally a newspaper reporter, but it also reads as a slice of life. Talese tries to show how these criminals, these brutal murderers, are just like you and I. They live as boring of lives as anyone else. It is incredibly interesting and works on so many levels, but when it comes down to bored mobsters who go through weeks, and months, of boredom, watching too much TV, overeating, and spending ordinary days with their families, it fails. I don't need to read about ordinary days of ordinary people. I live that life. When we are given insight into a life very few will ever know, it is interesting. Very good book that could have been great but just missed the mark by a very narrow margin.

Do you think the fictional world of THE GODFATHER features multiple murders and double-crosses? Try this non-fiction tale by NEW YORK TIMES reporter Gay Talese instead. How does a man inherit a mafia empire and then throw it away? Bill Bonnano, who claimed he inspired Puzo's character, was forced into the role of Don of the Bonnano family in 1964 when his father Joe was kidnapped on orders from The Commission. Bill turned out to be the anti-Michael Corleone. He proved incapable of holding his family together against gangsters from without, led by Carlo Gambino, and traitors from within, including the family consiglieri. Eventually, his father was released while Bill went to prison for allowing a low-level hood to use his credit card! Nota Bene: the wedding of Bill Bonnano to the daughter of mobster Joe Profaci was the inspiration for the wedding scene in THE GODFATHER. Tony Bennet, not Frank Sinatra, sang at the feast for free.

A great and interesting book about Bill Bonanno during that period of time. Most books are about someone who flipped and shares his life story, but this one is told by a journalist who observed and interviewed Bill and some of his relatives for a number of years.
I really like Talese's writing. He uses long sentences but it's vidid and captivating. Smooth and natural. It reads much faster than Raab's Five Families, for example, and I didn't find it hard to follow at all. Even though some facts are undiscussed or unexposed, it's more interesting to read than the common perspective of law enforcement and the media.

I recommend it if you want to know more are Bill as 'the son', his life and family during the Bonanno War, and also a perspective on Joseph Bonanno. I wouldn't read it without prior knowledge.
