The family / Mario Puzo ; completed by Carol Gino. - London : Arrow Books, 2003. - 418 p. : map ; 18 cm.

"In The Family, this novelist transports his readers back to fifteenth-century Rome and reveals the extravagance and intrigue of the Vatican. At the story's center is Rodrigo Borgia, Pope Alexander VI, a man whose lustful appetites for power, luxury, and women were matched only by his consuming love of family. Surrounding him are his extraordinary children: the simple, unloved Jofre; the irascible, heartless Juan; the beautiful, strong-willed Lucrezia; and the passionate warrior Cesare, Machiavelli's friend and inspiration. Their intermingled stories constitute a symphony of human emotion and behavior, from pride to romance to jealousy to betrayal and murderous rage. And their time, place, and characters are recaptured in all their earthy, human grandeur, with the unerring insight and compassion that were Mario Puzo's great gifts."--BOOK JACKET.
