    I second the praise of Winegardner's skill as a writer. His style is almost always more heavily tinted with wry humor than Puzo's was, and despite the length of his Cleveland opus, he usually writes more compactly than Puzo. He's the Director of the Creative Writing program at Florida State in Tallahassee, and the author of seven books. You'll find his short stuff in GQ, the Times magazine and other slick mags.
