Praise

Praise for Suburra

“Rome itself, in all its history, glory, and despair, is skillfully sewn into the fiber of Suburra . . . Evokes Mario Puzo’s famous trilogy and other classics of the genre.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[A] fast-moving crime thriller . . . an unflinching look at real-life widespread corruption in Italy.”
Publishers Weekly

“An enthralling noir novel that draws inspiration from the real-life scandals
that have plagued Italy in recent years.”
Paris Match
 
“With a bit of added splatter à la Tarantino, Suburra captures a great city
that has been tragically handed over to political, economic, and criminal corruption.”
La Repubblica
 
“No code of honor, magnificent godfathers, or other such nonsense here, just cynicism, rapacity, money as the only value that matters. Made in the image of the world as it is. Chilling.”
Télérama
 
Suburra may deal in traditional gangster movie tropes, but it uses them to tell a story that’s modern and universal.”
Vice (on film adaptation of the novel)
 
“Bonini and De Cataldo find the courage to recount the unadulterated truth of a city that seems to have forgotten it is part of the civilized world.”
—Paolo Sorrentino, Oscar Award-winning director of The Great Beauty.

“The basis of an award-winning 2015 Italian film, this contemporary noir will appeal to readers intrigued by gangland crime, big-city corruption, and how Italy actually “works.””
Library Journal (Starred Review)
