Description

An international bestseller from the author of Follow Your Heart, which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

'I kill you in order that I may live. I kill you in order that I may possess. I kill you in order that I may be free of you.' Thus the protagonist Rosa muses on a bitter winter night, alone and confused, as she faces the most difficult decision of her young life. Are we, the characters ask, damned or are we capable of salvation? Can we exist in a world dominated by greed and envy?

This is a book about the nature of evil, the struggle to live without fear and the search for love.

With this novel, Tamaro confirms her role as one of Italy's most loved writers...this book is eloquent in its simplicity, at once enjoyable and heartbreaking" * What's On * "Answer Me demands engagement...entertainingly grotesque" * Times Literary Supplement * "It's easy to see why Tamaro's bleakly atmospheric tales of life by the auto-strada, and her portentous pronouncements on love, life and Catholicism became such a runaway bestseller" * Independent *
