PRAISE FOR THE BOOK OF HIDDEN THINGS

“A thrilling spectacle that also manages to point poignantly at the way the landscapes we grow up in shape us in ways even beyond our understanding. A deeply felt look at the idea of home, clothed as a popcornworthy page-turner.” – Kirkus, starred review

“What a joy to have this in English. Francesco Dimitri’s fantastic fantasy novel has everything I like. A sensation of damp shadows moving just out of sight, and a slow, joyful, and mysterious unravelling of events. I can’t recommend it too highly.” – Joe R. Lansdale, author of The Thicket

“The Book of Hidden Things shows us that memories are stories that refuse to belong only to the past. Such stories can create places that are both wonderful and dangerous; whether we believe in them or not is up to us.” – Aliya Whiteley, author of The Beauty

“What a glorious read! This sun-drenched fantasy is a feast for the senses, reflecting on the value of friendship and what it means to finally grow up. If you loved the Neil Gaiman’s Ocean at the End of the Lane, this book is for you.” – Helen Marshall, author of Gifts for the One Who Comes After

“The Book of Hidden Things is both a mystery and a map. Follow the clues along the trail in Francesco Dimtri’s dazzling debut and you’ll be ushered into a hidden world of magic, not only within these pages, but also within your own life. Be prepared to be transformed.” – Mark Chadbourn, author of Age of Misrule

“Francesco Dimitri’s first novel in English is a wonder and a revelation. Hidden within this gripping, frightening story about an arcane manuscript is a deep, clear-eyed, and compassionate meditation on friendship as it evolves over time. The Book of Hidden Things is fantasy at its best: using magical tropes to illuminate real life.” – Terri Windling, author of The Wood Wife

“As soon as I read the first lines of The Book of Hidden Things, I felt at home. It is an immersive book, that draws you in and never lets you go. Gripping, ruthless in the way it describes the age of reason, dominated by a mysterious, magical Salento landscape very far from the chocolate box images we are used to. In a word, unmissable.” – Licia Troisi, author of Nihal From The Land Of Wind

“Francesco Dimitri is one of the most significant figures of the last generation of fantasy.” – Alan D. Altieri
