'A devastating marvel of a novel'

Sunday Telegraph



'If you're pining for an Italian break, then this might be the remedy: Heaven And Earth is rooted so deep in idyllic Puglia that you can almost feel the red soil under your sandals'

Daily Mail



'Raw and evocative: a breathtaking and poignant creation that will leave you itching under the skin'

Herald



'A story that sprawls and stuns'

goop



'A stunning achievement'

Andre Aciman, author of Call Me By Your Name



'Perfect, moving, honest, brilliant, with characters who feel like old friends'

Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less



'The perfect novel. Paolo Giordano is one of the handful of great writers working anywhere today'

Edmund White





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. And when Bern - the enigmatic, restless gravitational centre of the group - commits a brutal act of revenge, not even a final pilgrimage to the edge of the world will be enough to bring back those perfect, golden hours in the shadow of the olive trees.
