Honor Thy Father

"A marvelous piece of work, showing how a good journalist can catch a man just as he is ready to reconsider his past and is anxious to find someone who will listen...A book about a vanishing way of life in America: the Mafia."

The Times Literary Supplement
"Mr. Talese's insight will do more to help us understand the criminal than any amount of moral recrimination."

Mario Puzo
"An incredible job of reporting."

Los Angeles Times

The New York Review of Books
"An invaluable document."
