"this novel about love, fidelity and the cost of betrayal is an absolute scorcher"

Missiroli has said he was inspired to write Fedeltà after a conversation with his own father, who confided that he’d always been faithful to Missiroli’s mother, but at the cost of giving up a part of himself, and it is this dilemma - of whether we can be true to ourselves without betraying the people we love - that drives the narrative. 

Clever structured with characters criss-crossing through one another’s lives and the streets of Milan, with the second half of the book taking place nine years later, Fidelity teems with pain and pleasure, blood, sweat, and semen.
