Overview

His books sold more than 20 million copies. But few souls knew the man behind The Godfather like she did...

"An impressively forthcoming reminiscence full of creative insight. Gino is a natural storyteller." -Kirkus Reviews

Carol Gino made a promise. In her beloved patient's dying moments, the nurse vowed she would keep an eye on the woman's family: the family of world-famous author Mario Puzo.

As an aspiring author herself, Gino's connection to Puzo began with the effort to find her voice amidst the fanfare of a literary heavy hitter. She often picked the brains of award-winning and pioneering authors in his inner circle. But when she opened her heart to the man behind the mobster classic, she began a 20-year exploration of true power and passion.

Guided by sage insights and their powerful connection, Gino blazed the unique trail to an authentic and equitable partnership. Despite their gap in age and ideologies, the aspiring writer and the international bestseller uncovered the secrets of love, intimacy, and life.

With little written about Puzo, Gino's perceptive narrative draws from exclusive conversations and firsthand experiences. As the 50th anniversary of The Godfather attracts readers old and new, her story is one to pass down through the generations.

Me and Mario is an enthralling celebrity memoir by the person who knew Puzo better than anyone. If you like behind-the-scenes stories, feminist ideology, and exploring the minds of writing masters, then you'll love New York Times Best-selling Author Carol Gino's deftly observed biography.

My review is probably being effected that when I read this book I knew about Mario Puzo but I had never read anything by Carol Gino. I liked the ending of the book better than the beginning. Though I am not proud of this feeling, I was wondering why they did not get married and the end of the book gives the reason for this. I thought the book could have been shorter. A lot of the material repeats itself. What Gino and Puzo have in common is an Italian heritage and an interest in writing. However, she is a feminist and spiritual while Puzo believed traditional gender roles and was a rationalist. I received a free copy of this book in exhcange for an honest review.
