    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.

    Opis

    'A devastating marvel of a novel' - Sunday Telegraph

    'A highly enjoyable novel... Giordano is especially good on the textures, smells, heat and colours of the Italian south. These stay long in the mind, as does the way he writes about the obsessiveness of love, the way it dominates and distorts and the self-delusions and fantasies it gives rise to' - TLS

    'If you're pining for an Italian break, then this might be the remedy: Heaven And Earth is rooted so deep in idyllic Puglia that you can almost feel the red soil under your sandals' - Daily Mail

    'Raw and evocative: a breathtaking and poignant creation that will leave you itching under the skin' - Herald

    'A stunning achievement' - André 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

    '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.

    O avtorju

    -Paolo Giordano-

    Paolo Giordano italijanski pisatelj in doktor fizike je bil rojen leta 1982 v Torinu, kjer z ženo živi še danes.

    Odrasel je ob MTV-ju, njegova mama je anglistka in nanj je že zgodaj zelo vplivala anglo-ameriška književnost, glasba in filmi. Poleg tega, da ga navdušuje pop kultura, je tudi sam pravi zvezdnik v Italiji.

    Že s svojim prvencem Samotnost praštevil je leta 2008 osvojil najuglednejšo italijansko knjižno nagrado strega, povsem navdušil pa je tudi domače bralce, saj je bil roman prodan v več kot milijon izvodih. Prevajajo ga v trideset jezikov.
