Reviews

'[Davide Enia] talks to his reader and he lets his characters talk, characters who at times are pure voice, resounding at length. We've not only read his protagonists, we've listened to them, smelled them. They're not made of paper; they jump from the pages of this novel. A boy is a pair of fists and an excess of timidity; a girl is all looks and things left unsaid...On Earth As it Is in Heaven is an experience: you have to live it. A coming-of-age novel that's not at all traditional, it contains so much: war, boxing, love, sensuality, humor, friendship, death.' Elle (Italy) 'A feint, a dodge, a strike, you back away and then you land the decisive punch. As entertaining as a bout, as powerful as a direct hit: a book that leaves you breathless like a punch in the gut...Enia, a man of the theater as well as music, tells-in a language that's sometimes like ballet sometimes like hand-to-hand combat, fraught and graceful by turns-the sentimental and pugilistic education of a young native of Palermo in the nineties...A carnal book, full of sweat, and punches and blood and violence: the petty violence of the streets and the serious violence of the Mafia, always in the background. Enia strikes and leaves a mark.' Gioia 'Enia is at his best in dialogue: fraught, funny, dynamic, that records the debris of a daily life composed of rituals and repetitions that alternate between discomfort and consolation...This voice has an ancient, Mediterranean resonance, so that the dialogue becomes almost a chorus that tells of how time rushes by, how it is a mistress, a lover, a friend, the devil.' Il Mattino 'In a choral voice that Palermo seems almost to demand...and drawing from a fairly varied linguistic and stylistic palette, Enia's writing unfolds and enfolds...The novel draws you in and takes you far.' Rolling Stone (Italy) 'Truth and simplicity...furious talent. On Earth As it Is in Heaven, Davide Enia's debut novel, has these three powers...The fury of Enia's writing is tied to his authenticity, his telling things how they are...which lend the novel the rhythm of the ring. One intuits that there's something lived and indelible, something true, in this book...A powerful novel.' Vanity Fair (Italy) 'On Earth As it Is in Heaven is a novel of dazzling beauty...a book that takes on half a century of Palermitan history, from 1942-1992, and invents many unforgettable characters, beginning with the protagonist: the boxer Davidu.' Di Piu
