A bestselling novel in Italy, soon to be a motion picture directed by Edoardo Winspeare, and Elle magazine's book of the year. Eva Sleeps is a sweeping story about family, forgiveness, conflict, and the search for truth. A literary page- turner that will delight fans of Elena Ferrante.

Out of the struggles and conflicts in the border regions of Northern Italy and Austria comes a family story that embodies the history of nations. Eva, a forty-year-old public relations professional based in northern Italy, receives an unexpected message from the deep south. Vito, a man she knew as a child as a friend of her mother’s, is very ill and would like to see her one last time. He is a retired police officer who was stationed in the north during the late 1960s, a period rife with tension, protest and violence. These troubles, however, did not stop the young hapless policeman from falling in love with the “wrong” woman... The beautiful Gerda, accomplished cook, sister of a terrorist, and Eva’s mother. Their affair was a passionate one, but what was the nature of their love? And if he loved her so passionately why did he leave her to return to Calabria? What scars did those years leave on Vito, and on Gerda? It’s time for Eva to find out.
