Reviews

* Exuberant and audacious. Observer * The new Italian word for talent is Ammaniti. The Times * A fearsomely gifted writer. Independent * A master storyteller. Guardian * The story of a young boy who's heading towards adulthood. This book amazed me -- Bernardo Bertolucci * Near perfect [...] this small gem of storytelling has the balance just about right. Scotland on Sunday * Ammaniti's matter-of-fact, unadorned prose captures Lorenzo's angst-ridden, incomprehending world-view with a confident clarity, and as resolution back in the present day beckons, he plots the course of their filial relationship with a deft, understated skill -- Bram E Gieben The Skinny 20130223 * Me and You is a slim volume which takes only a couple of hours to read. But thanks to the skilfully presented Lorenzo and the poignant reconciliation of the boy with his half-sister, it lingers in the memory for much, much longer -- Alastair Mabbott The Herald 20130302
