Every summer Teresa follows her father to his childhood home in Puglia, down in the heel of Italy, a land of relentless, shimmering heat, centuries-old olive groves and taciturn, proud people. There Teresa spends long afternoons enveloped in a sun-struck stupor, reading her grandmother's cheap crime paperbacks. Everything changes the summer she meets the three boys who live on the masseria next door: Nicola, Tommaso and Bern - the man Teresa will love for the rest of her life. Raised like brothers on a farm that feels to Teresa almost suspended in time, the three boys share a complex, intimate and seemingly unassailable bond. But no bond is unbreakable and no summer truly endless, as Teresa soon discovers. Because there is resentment underneath the surface of that strange brotherhood, a twisted kind of love that protects a dark secret ... Ambitious and wondrous in an all-encompassing, 19th century-Bildungsroman-kind of way, this is a generational novel like no other. Paolo Giordano's first novel, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, was a #1 international bestseller, translated into more than forty languages worldwide. It won both the Premio Strega and the Premio Campiello (the Italian equivalent of, respectively, the Booker and the Costa prizes). He is the creator and writer of the new HBO series We Are Who We Are, co-written and directed by Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) and starring Chloe Sevigny.
