Before The Godfather and The Last Don, Mario Puzo wrote The Fortunate Pilgrim, a novel many believe to be one of the classics of Italian-American fiction. In this special edition, Mario Puzo's legions of fans will discover a different side of this legendary author, writing for the first time about an Italian family in which a woman holds the power.

Lucia Santa has traveled 3,000 miles of dark ocean, from the mountain farms of Italy to the streets of New York, hoping for a better life. Instead, she finds herself in Hell's Kitchen, in a bad marriage, raising six children on her own. As Lucia struggles to hold her family together, her daughter confronts the adult world of work and romance while her eldest son is drawn into the Mafia. Meanwhile, her youngest son aspires to American pursuits she cannot understand. Download and start listening now!

    " What a treasure to find! It's Puzo's voice in a new environment. I loved these characters, so believable. You feel like you live in the family. His details are so rich he can really paint a world, oily pastas sauce smells and the clatter of family and dishes in a tiny apartment, you fall into it. I liked seeing their struggle and success. Plus it was interesting to see NYC before it was cleaned up. "

    " Another one of those books I can remember reading during the 70's. I can't remember much about it but I do remember liking it enough to read it more than once. "
