Paolo Giordano (Italy) studied Physics at Turin University, graduating with honours. In 2008 he published his first novel, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, which soon became a bestseller and won the Strega Prize, Italy’s highest literary award. His most recent book is Heaven and Earth (2019) whose protagonist is Teresa, a young women who spends her summers at her grandmother’s home in a small town in the south of Italy. The ploy unfolds as her life is exposed to and transformed by Nicola, Tommaso and Bern, three boys who live on a nearby property, and she learns how others can have power, or even control -whether it be emotional, social or political- over you. Giordano will talk to Inés Martín Rodrigo.
