This could get nasty, this podcast with Ed Falco. Falco has written a violent book. It must be violent. It’s "The Family Corleone," the prequel to "The Godfather," by Mario Puzo.
But we don’t dwell on the violence in this interview. Because a source close to the great director of the movie version of "The Godfather," Francis Ford Coppola, told us Coppola never viewed "The Godfather" as a story primarily about the mafia. He viewed it as a story about family.
