Cover illustration for the Penguin paperback of Richard Condon’s eighth novel, a tale of American gangsterism.  While Condon’s works were usually marketed as thrillers they were written as political satires and this savage indictment of America is no exception.  The photo-realistic technique deployed by Coppola for the cover illustration references Condon’s success as a scriptwriter.  Five of his novels were made into films.
