A New York Times Notable Book of the YearA Sunday Times and Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the YearTranslated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri, Ties is a compulsively readable and provocative novel about marriage and family by one of Italy's bestselling novelists.Like many marriages, Vanda and Aldo's has been subject to strain, to attrition, to the burden of routine. Yet it has survived intact. Or so things appear. The rupture in their marriage lies years in the past, but if one looks closely enough, the fissures and fault lines are evident. It is a cracked vase that may shatter at the slightest touch. Or perhaps it has already shattered, and nobody is willing to acknowledge the fact. Domenico Starnone's thirteenth work of fiction is a powerful short novel about relationships, family, love, and the ineluctable consequences of one's actions. Known as a consummate stylist and beloved as a talented storyteller, Domenico Starnone is the winner of Italy's most prestigious literary award, The Strega. Winner of The Bridge Prize for Best Novel 2015

    Thomas Everett Vanderboomhas quoted9 months ago
    Writ‍­ing is a way to sal‍­vage life, to give it form and mean‍­ing. It ex‍­poses what we have hid‍­den, un‍­earths what we have neg‍­lected, mis‍­re‍­membered, denied. It is a meth‍­od of cap‍­tur‍­ing, of pin‍­ning down, but it is also a form of truth, of lib‍­er‍­a‍­tion.
