Five books on the Mafia

For the Independent, Alice-Azania Jarvis came up with a reading list on the Mafia.

Most of the titles are non-fiction, but one novel made the list:
The Godfather by Mario Puzo

The archetypal Mafia novel, Puzo's classic chronicles the evolution of a Sicilian Mafia family based in New York, under the stewardship of the title's "Godfather", Don Vito Corleone. Immortalised on the big screen in Francis Ford Coppola's famous trilogy, it remains the most recognised, and most significant, account of gangster life in popular culture.
Read about the other books on the list.

The Godfather is one of Jackie Collins' six best books and five best literary guilty pleasures.
