FROM BESTSELING AUTHOR OF THE GODFATHER - A classic. The novel is lifted into literature by its highly charged language, its penetrating insights, and its mixture of tenderness and rage. - New York Times Book Review

Described by the author as his best and most literary book. 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, The Fortunate Pilgrim is Italian-American fiction at its very best.

The book's hero, Lucia Santa, is an incredibly captivating character and based on Puzo's very own mother - he describes, her wisdom, her ruthlessness, and her unconquerable love for her family and for life itself, qualities not valued in women at the time.
