Italian literary superstar Niccolò Ammaniti??s debut novel, I??m Not Scared, prompted gushing praise, hit international best-seller lists, and was made into a smash indie film. With his highly anticipated follow-up, Ammaniti takes his unparalleled empathy for children, his scythe-sharp observations, and his knack for building tension to a whole new level. In a tiny Italian village, a young boy named Pietro is growing up tormented by bullies and ignored by his parents. When an aging playboy, Graziano Biglia, returns to town, a change is in the air: Pietro decides to take on the bullies, his lonely teacher Flora finds romance with the town??s prodigal son, and the inept janitor at the school proclaims his love for his favorite prostitute. But the village isn??t ready for such change, and when Graziano seduces and forgets Flora, both she and Pietro??s tentative hopes seem crushed forever. With great tenderness, Ammaniti shines light on the heart-wrenching failures and quiet redemptions of ordinary people trying to live extraordinary lives. I??ll Steal You Away is a fresh and classic story of a boy learning to be a man that delivers on the promise of Ammaniti??s acclaimed debut.
