About the Author

Paolo Cognetti was born in 1978 in Milan. He divides his time between the city and his cabin 6,000 feet up in the Italian Alps. His international bestseller, The Eight Mountains, is published in 38 countries, and won both Italy's Premio Strega and the French Prix Medicis etranger. Without Ever Reaching the Summit- A Himalayan Journey is his most recent book.

Reviews

A fine book, a rich, achingly painful story that is made for all of us who have ever felt a hunger for the mountains. Few books have so accurately described the way stony heights can define one's sense of joy and rightness. And it is an exquisite unfolding of the deep way humans may love one another. -- Annie Proulx
Could Cognetti be the new Elena Ferrante? * The Bookseller *
A great story about friendship and about what it means to become a man * Vanity Fair Italia *
There are no more universal themes than those of the landscape, friendship, and becoming adults, and Cognetti's writing becomes classical (and elegant) to best tell this story...a true novel by a great writer * Rolling Stone Italia *
A beautifully crafted piece of writing... Absorbing... The power of nature to transform the individual, for good and for bad, is seen through each of the characters -- Sarah Gilmartin * Irish Times *
