An accomplished literary debut, notable for its delicate prose and sharply delineated characters...a captivating tale.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Recommended for thoughtful readers who appreciate both the interior and exterior journey.--Booklist
"The Vietri Project offers the best kind of mystery, one where each new discovery not only opens up our understanding of the story, but of the world we live in. Nicola DeRobertis-Theye writes with precision, such finely-tuned sentences, and conjures the past without getting lost in it, using it as a map to find a way towards something beautiful."--Kevin Wilson, author of New York Times bestseller Nothing to See Here
Nicola DeRobertis-Theye has written a smart, taut debut about a woman in her twenties trying to find a path into the rest of her life. The Vietri Project is a riveting, shifting quest, an evocative trip to Rome, and a beautiful portrayal of the ways you need to return to the past in order to move forward. A great delight from start to finish."
--Lily King, New York Times bestselling author of Writers and Lovers
"The Vietri Project deftly captures the desires and difficulties we face when resolving the many threads of the past--personal, familial, cultural--into a life we can call our own. A cool, precise, and elegant book--I was totally mesmerized by it." --Alexandra Chang, author of Days of Distraction
Few books treat history as part of the natural fabric of life rather than a murky backdrop; this is one of them. The Vietri Project establishes Nicola DeRobertis-Theye as a contemporary of questing writers like Teju Cole and Rachel Cusk.--Karan Mahajan, author of National Book Award finalist, The Association of Small Bombs
