The Godfather author writes to his agent: "I want Candida Donadio to represent me on the Mafia book"
TLS signed “Best, Mario,” one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, July 20, 1968. Letter to literary agent Owen Laster, in part: "I want Candida Donadio to represent me on the Mafia book for some reasons which have nothing to do with the relationship you and I have had. I've always been very grateful for the kindness and courtesies you've shown me. But we'll discuss this when I get back and I understand why you've told me about the legal difficulties etc. I'm sure we can straighten all that stuff out." In fine condition. Puzo's iconic novel The Godfather would be published in 1969 by G. P. Putnam's Sons.
