Reviews

Praise for Lesser Islands


"Lorenza Pieri's book will remind readers of Elsa Morante's Arturo's Island and Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse. But this is also different story, as poetic as it is exciting."--Huffington Post (Italy)


"Flawless... One of the most beautiful novels of the year."--la Repubblica


"An elegant novel filled with nostalgia for the beauty and remoteness of the Mediterranean."--Il Futuro


Praise for The Garden of Monsters


"[It] succeeds as both a family saga and a tender Bildungsroman--a breadth of scope enabled by Pieri's masterful storytelling."--Financial Times


"A perfectly narrated family saga, in which the loves and conflicts of each individual are composed to form a complex, vivid mosaic of the human heart and its revolutions."--Corriere della Sera


"This book confirms Lorenza Pieri as one of the great narrators of adolescence."--La Repubblica
