Don't Move, Paperback


Timoteo: high-flying career as a surgeon, beautiful wife, luxurious apartment, villa by the sea - he seems the epitome of success and glamour.

But then his daughter has an accident and is rushed to the hospital in a coma.

A colleague operates on her, and while the agonised Timoteo awaits the outcome, he holds the reader in the vice-like grip of his confession.

For, beneath the veneer of his apparently charmed life, there is a story of squalor, degradation, deceit and strange passion.

The story of a doomed love affair with a woman who, from the moment Timoteo meets her, undermines everything he thought he knew about himself.

Mazzantini's chilling portrait of a supremely self-assured man losing control has taken readers by storm across the world.

Highly atmospheric, subtly disturbing, this is a powerful and extraordinary novel.
