Praise

Praise for Strangers I Know

“Playful, looping, atmospheric and funny, Strangers I Know is a singular achievement, one of those rare books that expanded my understanding of what a novel can do. Claudia Durastanti is an absolutely thrilling writer. 
Lauren Groff, author of Matrix and Fates and Furies

“Brave and deeply felt… Here the novel is not only a medium of illumination, but also a buoy cast into the dark waters of memory, imagination, and boldly embodied questions. In other words, it is my favorite kind of writing, the kind that not only tells of the world—but burrows through it, alive.”
—Ocean Vuong, author of On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous

“A fiercely inventive, lyrical journey into the heart, and into the cultures of America, Italy, and England. Durastanti’s singular voice and the intensity of her honesty stayed with me. I’ve never read or heard anything like this book.”
—Krys Lee, author of Drifting House and How I Became a North Korean

“Claudia Durastanti’s writing is lyrical and sharp, underpinned with a searching gaze that turns the everyday into something darkly beautiful. Every page feels totally, absorbingly, alive.”
—Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure

“The story of an upbringing full of obstacles. Like a Dickens character, Claudia goes from one mishap to the next, always keeping her curiosity of the world and her capacity to feed deep affections.” Rai Cultura

“Halfway between Natalia Ginzburg and Joan Didion, Durastanti’s [Strangers I Know] is her Family Lexicon.” L’Independente
