Product description


"Exuberant and audacious." (Observer)

"The new Italian word for talent is Ammaniti." (The Times)

"A fearsomely gifted writer." (Independent)

"A master storyteller." (Guardian)

"The story of a young boy who's heading towards adulthood. This book amazed me'" (Bernardo Bertolucci)

"Near perfect [...] this small gem of storytelling has the balance just about right." (Scotland on Sunday)

"An original, thought-provoking and well-written piece of fiction... Ammaniti takes us on a remarkable voyage through the fear of future responsibility which awaits young people on the brink of adulthood and laces it with all the irony, self-criticism and self-indulgence familiar to that age-group. This is a powerful novel, which asks us to consider the relationships we have with our own siblings and the memories of our own adolescence" (Emilia Ippolito The Independent)

"Ammaniti's matter-of-fact, unadorned prose captures Lorenzo's angst-ridden, incomprehending world-view with a confident clarity, and as resolution back in the present day beckons, he plots the course of their filial relationship with a deft, understated skill" (Bram E Gieben The Skinny 2013-02-23)

"Me and You is a slim volume which takes only a couple of hours to read. But thanks to the skilfully presented Lorenzo and the poignant reconciliation of the boy with his half-sister, it lingers in the memory for much, much longer" (Alastair Mabbott The Herald 2013-03-02)
