NOW A MAJOR FILM '... with air in its lungs and love in its heart' Guardian ***** An epic journey of friendship and self-discovery set in the breathtaking Italian Alps, about two boys who meet in the same village every summer, and the men they grow up to become. Pietro, an impressionable city boy, spends his summers in a secluded valley in the Alps. There, surrounded by meadows and peaks, he begins to learn of his father's dreams and passions. There, too, he meets Bruno, the son of a local stonemason. As the pair run wild, they form a once-in-a-lifetime friendship. Then one year, the summer visits stop. Pietro is drawn to cities around the world. But the memory of the mountains never leaves him and, after his father dies, he returns in search of the freedom and camaraderie that he once knew. 'Exquisite... A rich, achingly painful story' ANNIE PROULX, author of The Shipping News 'ENCHANTING' Guardian 'BRILLIANT' New York Times 'ABSORBING' Irish Times Winner of the 2017 Strega Prize, the Prix Mdicis tranger, and the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

A fine book, a rich, achingly painful story that is made for all of us who have ever felt a hunger for the mountains. Few books have so accurately described the way stony heights can define ones sense of joy and rightness. And it is an exquisite unfolding of the deep way humans may love one another. -- Annie Proulx Could Cognetti be the new Elena Ferrante? * The Bookseller * A great story about friendship and about what it means to become a man * Vanity Fair Italia * There are no more universal themes than those of the landscape, friendship, and becoming adults, and Cognettis writing becomes classical (and elegant) to best tell this storya true novel by a great writer * Rolling Stone Italia * A beautifully crafted piece of writing... Absorbing... The power of nature to transform the individual, for good and for bad, is seen through each of the characters -- Sarah Gilmartin * Irish Times *
