Thirty-nine-year-old Italian literary superstar Niccolo Ammaniti's novel I'm Not Scared prompted gushing critical praise, hit international best-seller lists, and was made into a hit indie film. In I'll Steal You Away, Ammaniti takes his empathy for children and ability to conjure vivid, quirky characters straight out of the Italian countryside to fantastic literary heights. With profound tenderness, Ammaniti shines light on the broken hearts and misbegotten dreams of ordinary folks striving only for slightly better lives. Through the eyes of a fragile boy and a self-aggrandizing small-town lothario, he shows how two very different people each come to realize that redemption must come from within.
From the Publisher:
Growing up in a tiny, remote Italian village, Pietro is ignored by his parents and suffers the torment of bullies, with only his best friend Gloria for solace, but the arrival of an aging playboy, Graziano Biglia, turns both of their lives upside down and prompts Pietro to realize that only by leaving home can he become the man he should be. Reprint.
Annotation:
Niccolo Ammaniti's beautifully written and sharply felt novel tells the story of a sensitive Italian boy trapped in a crappy town surrounded by his beastly family. His life surprisingly crosses with that of Graziano, an over-the-hill performer who returns to his home town as a hero, but quickly descends into abject middle-age. Both of them strive hungrily for love and happiness, but the world leaves them famished. Ammaniti's novel is filled with vivid emotion, strange characters, and surprising plotting, and shows an unromantic portrait of small-town Italy rarely seen in the United States.

Praise

"The novel builds, with heartbreaking clarity....Anyone who thought THE BICYCLE THIEF had told them all they needed to know about injustice has another think coming." - Christopher Bray 09/10/2006
