Summary
Centers on the Prizzis' efforts to influence a presidential election and ensure that Charley Partanna becomes the new president's right hand man
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Tired, depressed and bored, Charley Fontana marries Maerose "for the change." But he needn't have bothered. Don Corrado has a bigger change in mind...respectability for the Prizzis.

Gambling, narcotics, extortion, murder, loan-sharking, prostitution -- these lines get franchised to young muscle. But the money still flows to the family. Don Corrado uses it to leverage a new scam: national political power, with Charley (now the respectable Charles Macy Barton) at the helm.

"Another feast of cheerful mordancy. PRIZZI'S GLORY is further proof that there is no more accomplished or entertaining satirist writing today." (The New Yorker)
