About This Book
“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
The Winner of 71st Premio Strega and 2017 Prix Médicis étranger.
The Eight Mountains is the timeless coming-of-age novel about life, family, friendship, and a relationship between generations through the lives of two Italian boys – Pietro and Bruno.
Pietro visits Grana, an isolated valley in the Alps, every summer with his parents who are the mountain lovers. While he stays in Grana, he meets Bruno— an adventurous local boy at the same age of his. Pietro and Bruno develop a lifelong friendship as they spend time together exploring the mountains and pondering the true meaning of life. Pietro estranges his family by leaving the mountains. Later, his father’s sudden death brings him back to the old place where he left off.
