Born in 1920, Mario Puzo has written numerous novels and books. He was born in a poor family and lived in Hell’s Kitchen most of his life. Readers will find that most of his writing is inspired from life in New York and especially the Italian Americans there. His most famous books include The Godfather, The Sicilian, Omerta, The Last Don and Fools Die. Not only did Puzo write about mafia and Italian Americans but he also wrote books like The Dark Arena which is about war and soldiers. He died in 1999, and never saw his book Omerta launched. Nevertheless Mario Puzo had a wonderful career, both in writing and screenplay.
