9780099417996: The Fortunate Pilgrim

From the barren farms of Italy to the cramped tenements of New York, the immigrant families struggle with an adopted life - none more so than the Angeluzzi-Corbos. At their head stands Lucia Santa, wife, widow and mother of two families. It is her formidable will that steers them through the Depression and the early years of the war. But she cannot prevent the conflict between Italian and American values - nor the violence and bloodshed which must surely follow...

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

From the Inside Flap:

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.
