Every Angel is Terrifying

Susanna Tamaro

Every Angel is Terrifying

Bompiani

Year: 2013

Pages: 268

A courageous, intimate, and powerful memoir; an ode to life despite its darker moments.


Born on a dark and stormy night in Trieste, where the violent Bora wind demolishes everything in its wake, Tamaro was abandoned by her father and rejected by her mother, a childhood plagued by a sense of emptiness and isolation. She discovered the world through beauty, nature, love, friendship, poetry, and literature. Displaced by a terrifying earthquake, she lived in Rome during Italy’s violent years of terrorism, and finally found freedom through writing.
