FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE HUMMINGBIRD
'The dawn will still be far away, and you will lift your eyes to the sky, and the sky will be as black as sackcloth and ashes'
Addressed to a 'you' that encompasses the author, the reader and all of us at once, narrated in the future tense of apocalyptic texts and inspired by Sandro Veronesi's own experience of caring for his elderly parents, Prophecy is a powerful and unforgettable story of immense grief and infinite love.
A visionary take on life by one of today's most remarkable writers.
