I'll Steal You Away
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.
