Reviews

Praise for Domenico Starnone

"One of Italy's most accomplished novelists."--Tim Parks, The Guardian

"Starnone packs a huge amount into a small compass. Engrossing."--The Sunday Times

"Their relationship, perfectly captured by Starnone's precise writing, gives the novel a rich foundation to allow for a juxtaposition of the old and the new, the rigid and the silly, while also providing readers with moments of pure comic relief, marked by the characters' signature, witty stichomythia."--Vox

"Short and emotionally astute, a shrewd mix of humor and dread that keeps you reading."--The Chicago Tribune

"Domenico Starnone has written an emotionally complex, layered story whose brevity serves to amplify profound themes of self-identity, marriage, aging, death and the daunting sacrifices of the creative life."--Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)

"A superb, sometimes unsettling intergenerational portrait hitting on basic truths."--Library Journal (Starred Review)

"[A] new book from Starnone is an event to celebrate."--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"Ties is...the leanest, most understated and emotionally powerful novel by Domenico Starnone."--Rachel Donadio, The New York Times

"Ties is puzzle-like, architectural, a novel ingeniously constructed."--The New Yorker

"[Ties] is as vivid and devastating as anything you will read this year. A slim, stunning meditation on marriage, fidelity, honesty, and truth."--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
