[Starnone] portrays unflinchingly the violence, physical and verbal, that can erupt within the closest relationships. * Financial Times (Best book of the week) * One of Italys most accomplished novelists. * The Guardian * Starnone packs a huge amount into a small compass. * The Sunday Times * "What is most thrilling about Trust is its overwhelming sense of unease.... the selves we make for ourselves and others may be the most dangerous of the stories we tell." * The Times Literary Supplement * "There's a big #MeToo moment in this novel [...]. Absolutely brilliant! I have to say: Jhumpa Lahiri has done an amazing job. She is the best translator a writer could wish for." * RT, Arena * A short, sharp novel that cuts like a scalpel to the core of its characters. * Los Angeles Times * A sweeping examination of aging, love, and success, Trust allows readers to define the boundaries of the novel's marriage and families for themselves. This is the third of Starnones novels that Lahiri has translated over the last six years, and her deft hand seamlessly reveals Starnones masterful narrative at every turn. * Booklist * Readers get two powerhouse writers with this novel, since the book was translated from Italian by author Jhumpa Lahiri. * Boston.com * "An Italian master gives it a suspenseful twist in this vibrant novel thats equal parts Endless Love, la dolce vita, and unreliable narration.A rip of a read." * Oprah Daily * "Trust unfolds with all the tension of a thriller despite much of the action taking place in the mind of the protagonist." * Big Issue North *
