Paolo Giordano recommends
Buzz Aldrin, What Happened to You in All the Confusion? (2011)
Johan Harstad
"There's so much music, exhuberance, bewilderment, and sweet melancholy in Johan Harstad's Buzz Aldrin. It's roch 'n' roll, then heartbreaking, then rock 'n' roll again. I devoured every line."
Can You Hear Me? (2017)
Elena Varvello
"Can you hear me? shines a light on one family's black heart, a place where opposites coexist: tenderness and fear; happiness and pain; unfaltering faith and ugly suspicions. A book to get lost in."
