Can You Hear Me? by Elena Varvello
Translated by Alex Valente
August is Women in Translation month – and my review of this debut novel by Italian author Elena Varvello is over at Shiny New Books.
A combination of psychothriller and coming of age story that works, brilliantly, these two theme entwine around each other, generating terrific suspense. You really care about Elia, the teenaged narrator, but all the characters are drawn sympathetically.
Truly unputdownable, it goes straight onto my best of the year list.
