Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary new dystopian novel from the author of the international best seller I'm Not Scared.
Summer has ended, but the heat will not let up. Ash has covered everything. Weeds and wheat grow around the cars abandoned in the road. Anna and Astor live in the house behind the fence, surviving in a world stripped of adults.
The rooms are piled high with rubbish. Their mother's skeleton lies perfect on the bed. And every few days, Anna must head out beyond the fence for provisions and medicine. Each time she goes, she may never come back.
A huge best seller in Italy, Anna is a story about the survival of the human spirit after the worst has happened.


What the Critics Say

"Ammaniti's prose is faultless from the first... A fearsomely gifted writer." (The Independent)
"A writer of rigorous imagination and moral subtlety." (The Times Literary Supplement)
"A master storyteller." (The Guardian)

Any additional comments?

Please do more Eva. I'll listen to all your books. You had me hooked after listening to you read The Italian girl. I have since listed to two more Lucinda Riley books only to discover it was not necessarily the author I fell in love with. Though I must say The Italian Girl's journey from the piedigrotta, a tale of passionate love and opera, was sheer brilliance. I have listened to it two or three times and each time it sweeps me away on a journey.
