About the Author

Niccolo Ammaniti was born in Rome in 1966. He has written three novels and a collection of short stories. His first novel, Steal You Away, was longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, and he won the prestigious Italian Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Fiction with his bestselling novel I'm Not Scared, which has been translated into forty languages and became a prize-winning film. In 2007 his third novel, The Crossroads, received the Premio Strega, Italy's equivalent of the Man Booker.

Reviews

* Ammaniti has cranked up the volume for his blistering new novel. Independent * Every scene contains a twist. Guardian * Brutal but effective. The Times * Energy and danger spray off it like water from a choppy sea ... Very hard to put down. Daily Mail * One of Italy's brightest literary stars ... Combines tense horror with the blackest comedy. Observer * Ammaniti fills his scenes with such rich detail, humour and surprise that it is impossible not to be drawn in ... A forceful portrait of contemporary Italy, providing a long overdue counterbalance to the romantic, tourism-drive portraits of the country. And yet, for all the harshness of his world, warmth bubbles up between the cracks. Financial Times * Offers an artful interstiching of plots and cinematic, horror-dazed images, and Jonathan Hunt's translation is exemplary. Observer * Undeniably gripping ... Indeed, this is in a surprising way a love story. Scotsman * A compulsively readable tragedy with a bleakly comic underbelly, as if the Kray twins' gang had been infiltrated by a couple of Marx brothers. Sunday Herald * The Crossroads is a rollicking dark horror-comic, a gruelling piece of fun. Independent
