Latest reviews

  • “The Garden of Monsters succeeds as both a family saga and a tender Bildungsroman — a breadth of scope enabled by Pieri’s masterful storytelling.”
    — The Financial Times, Jun 22 2020
  • “Pieri adds to a robust tradition in modern Italian literature...the novel of adolescent disenchantment, in which charmed and secret places are crucibles from which more hardened lives emerge.”
    — Literary Hub, May 28 2020
