THE PUBLISHING SENSATION OF THE YEAR FOR EVERY FILM FAN The never-before-published edition of Francis Ford Coppola’s notes and annotations on The Godfather novel by Mario Puzo reveals the story behind one of the world’s most iconic films. The most important unpublished work on one of the greatest films of all time, The Godfather, written before filming, by the man who wrote and directed it—Francis Ford Coppola, then only thirty-two years old—reveals the intense creative process that went into making this seminal film. With his meticulous notes and impressions of Mario Puzo’s novel, the notebook was referred to by Coppola daily on set while he directed the movie. The Godfather Notebook pulls back the curtain on the legendary filmmaker and the film that launched his illustrious career. Complete with an introduction by Francis Ford Coppola and exclusive photographs from on and off the set, this is a unique, beautiful, and faithful reproduction of Coppola’s original notebook. This publication will change the way the world views the iconic film—and the process of filmmaking at large. A must-have book of the season. Nothing like it has ever been published before

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Mario Puzo and Carol Gino—Beyond the Shadows of The Godfather, there was the Light of a Love Story New York Times bestselling author Carol Gino, offers her intimate memoir about love and creative collaboration with acclaimed writer, Mario Puzo, author of The Godfather. Often funny, sometimes raw and always true, Carol invites us into their private life together, as they traveled from New York to Hollywood, Vegas, Cannes, Venice, Rome—and that one time—to Sicily. She reveals the appetites and excesses in the life of this clever and gracious author, screenwriter and one of America’s great storytellers. Filled with Puzo's tips on "how to tell a great truth," fellow authors and aspiring writers will love this inside-look into the mind and art of the legendary author and the woman he chose to challenge and love for over twenty years. Includes 17 photos. ★ Mario Puzo; author of The Godfather, the epic novel that inspired three, sweeping, dramatic sagas with Francis Ford Coppola and that wove into the American mythos, the archetype of the most romantic patriarchy of all time. ★ Carol Gino; independent, courageous, revolutionary, Nurse and patient advocate—a one-time 60’s Feminist and a woman with a mission to “stamp death and disease out of the Western Hemisphere.” Find out what The Godfather author Mario Puzo taught Carol Gino about Love, Power and the Art of Storytelling—and what she taught him about Women, Life, and Death. From the book: "You going to write today Mario?” I called across the room to him one Saturday morning after we’d had breakfast. "I am writing," he answered. "I don’t hear anything, and what I see is a man lying on his couch," I said. "I don’t see anything that vaguely resembles writing going on." Mario sat up on the couch, his legs crossed, feet resting on the wooden cocktail table in front of him. That table was stacked full of books, at least twenty of them. Mario read voraciously, at least one or two books a day. He reached over and lit one of his large dark cigars. "I am writing," he repeated. "It’s not coming bad." "Okay," I said, laughing. "Let me read a few pages so I can see how it sounds." "You’ve got to wait until I type them," he said. "So you admit you haven’t written anything," I said. He shook his head and said, "You don’t get it. By the time I sit down to type my first draft, my books are already written." "What does that mean?" I asked. "What looks like me lying on the couch resting, reading, playing cards is just me waiting for the characters to show up," he said. "When they show up, I let them tell their stories. When they finish, I type." "For those who love celebrity bios, celebrity memoirs and especially memoirs of love, Carol Gino’s, Me and Mario: Love, Power and Writing with Mario Puzo, author of The Godfather, satisfies all three."

Hollywood's Italian American Filmmakers

Hollywood's Italian American Filmmakers explores the different ways in which Italian American directors from the 1920s to the present have responded to their ethnicity. While some directors have used film to declare their ethnic roots and create an Italian American "imagined community," others have ignored or even denied their background. Jonathan J. Cavallero examines the films of Frank Capra, Martin Scorsese, Nancy Savoca, Francis Ford Coppola, and Quentin Tarantino with a focus on what the films reveal about each director's view on Italian American identities. Whereas Capra's films highlight similarities between immigrant characters and WASP Americans, Scorsese accepts his ethnic heritage but also sees it as confining. Similarly, many of Coppola's films provide a nostalgic treatment of Italian American identity, but with little criticism of the culture's more negative aspects. And while Savoca's movies reveal her artful ability to recognize how ethnic, gender, and class identities overlap, Tarantino's films exhibit a playfully postmodern engagement with Italian American ethnicity. Cavallero's exploration of the films of Capra, Scorsese, Savoca, Coppola, and Tarantino demonstrates how immigrant Italians fought prejudice, how later generations positioned themselves in relation to their predecessors, and how the American cinema, usually seen as a cultural institution that works to assimilate, has also served as a forum where assimilation was resisted.

Bandi ist das Pseudonym des ersten literarischen Dissidenten aus Nordkorea. Sein Buch ist die Sammlung von sieben Geschichten, die in den Neunziger Jahren geschrieben wurden und erst jetzt unter riskanten Umständen aus dem Land gelangt sind. In schlichter Poesie und mit feinem Sinn für Humor erzählt der Autor von einem Leben, das vom totalitären Regime durchdrungen ist. Da ist der junge Bauer, dem die nötige Reisegenehmigung fehlt, um seine sterbende Mutter in einer nahen Provinz zu besuchen. Und die Ehe eines jungen Ingenieurs zerbricht an den vererblichen Hierarchien. Der Autor der Geschichten klagt an, macht keinen Hehl aus seiner Wut auf das Regime. »Denunziation« ist ein einzigartiger Blick in ein abgeschottetes Land und ein so mutiges wie beeindruckendes Stück Literatur.

It is 1963 in New York, and things have never been better for the Corleones. They've taken out their Mafia rivals, and legitimised the Family. Outside the fortified building owned by Michael Corleone, newly undisputed Boss of Bosses, a parade of people - among them former mob rivals and an emissary from the Mayor of New York - wait to ask the great man for favours. Only one thing remains to be done. Traitorous former Corleone capo Nick Geraci has powerful friends and far too much to say, and needs to be brought in. But then everything changes. As fireworks explode over First Avenue, news arrives that Jimmy Shea, President of the United States and an old friend of the Corleone's, has been assassinated...
