Description - The Lovers by Paolo Cognetti

The new novel from prizewinning author, Paolo Cognetti - a love story set in a tiny village high in the Italian Alps.

The new novel from prizewinning author, Paolo Cognetti is a love story set in a tiny village high in the Italian Alps. Its protagonists, Fausto and Silvia, meet in winter, their relationship becoming a refuge in all senses, and the seasons, as well as the mountains, an integral part of their story together. It has a classic, enduring appeal, a cinematic feel, a captivating backdrop, and a romantic sensibility underpinned by a spare, powerful prose style.

Across both fiction and non-fiction, Cognetti's writing seeks to understand human interactions with landscape, interpreting what our obsessions with extremes of beauty, endurance and isolation tell us about ourselves and our relationships with others.
