  • The Girl at the Door was a critical and commercial success for Mondadori in Italy this past year, garnering rave reviews in national media outlets
  • It’s a timely and nuanced exploration of a complicated issue, perfect for the #metoo, “Cat Person” moment. The book has been lauded by La Repubblica, La Stampa, and Corriere della sera among others for its boundary-pushing treatment of this sensitive topic
  • It recalls The Days of Abandonment by Elena Ferrante and Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill in its exploration of female pain, motherhood, and the complicated dynamics of a marriage
  • The Rashomon-style narrative offers a penetrating and complex portrait of a sexual assault and its aftermath, in the alternating perspectives of the perpetrator and his pregnant partner
  • The TV rights were optioned by Wildside, producer of the Elena Ferrante TV series
  • Fourth Estate will publish in the UK, and Buchet/Chastel in France
