Prequel to The Godfather and Trailer, “The Family Corleone”

Compared to the actual book, the trailer for The Family Corleone is quite lighthearted. The first chapter of the novel has just been released on PW and is anything but humorous, reflecting the grim code of the Mafia. Ed Falco sets his work in 1933 when Vito Corleone is hoping his children will succeed in school, yet his oldest son,  Sonny, wants nothing more than to continue in the family business. The expected demise of Prohibition will create new tensions for organized crime: who will rise to the top and maintain control of the burgeoning liquor business?
