"A novel that builds with every chapter, as happens with talented storytellers. Although set in another era, [I'm Staying Here] speaks to our current tumultuous times: borders, migration, ethnic conflicts, abuse of power over ordinary people, authoritarian impulses." --L'Espresso "With its theme of resistance and its succinct style, without an unnecessary adjective, [I'm Staying Here] recalls the best examples of Italian neorealism." --TuttoLibri
