Heaven and Earth

Giordano Paolo

'A devastating marvel of a novel' Sunday Telegraph
'A stunning achievement' Andre Aciman, author of Call Me By Your Name

'Perfect, moving, honest, brilliant, with characters who feel like old friends' Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less
'A lush picture of growing up in the Italian countryside and a deeply affecting story of friendships under the strain of time and tragedy' Dave Eggers, bestselling author of The Circle
'The perfect novel. Paolo Giordano is one of the handful of great writers working anywhere today' Edmund White
Every summer Teresa follows her father to his childhood home in Puglia, down in the heel of Italy, a land of relentless, shimmering heat, centuries-old olive groves and taciturn, proud people. There Teresa spends long afternoons enveloped in a sun-struck stupor, reading her grandmother's cheap crime paperbacks. Everything changes the summer she meets the three boys who live on the masseria next door: Nicola, Tommaso and Bern - the man Teresa will love for the rest of her life. Raised like brothers on a farm that feels to Teresa almost suspended in time, the three boys share a complex, intimate and seemingly unassailable bond. But no bond is unbreakable and no summer truly endless, as Teresa soon discovers. Because there is resentment underneath the surface of that strange brotherhood, a twisted kind of love that protects a dark secret. And when Bern - the enigmatic, restless gravitational centre of the group - commits a brutal act of revenge, not even a final pilgrimage to the edge of the world will be enough to bring back those perfect, golden hours in the shadow of the olive trees. PRAISE FOR PAOLO GIORDANO 'Mesmerizing... Giordano works with piercing subtlety' New York Times on The Solitude of Prime Numbers 'Elegant and fiercely intelligent' Elle on The Solitude of Prime Numbers 'Elegiac, tender and mournful' Wall Street Journal on Like Family
