Paolo Giordano was just 25 when his first novel, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, took Italy by storm last year… selling over a million copies and becoming the year’s No. 1 bestselling title. It has been translated into twenty languages and will be filmed by Italian director Saverio Costanzo.
How did the idea for the book arise? What’s it like to have your first novel become such a breathtaking international success? And – how do you cope with all the pressures and expectations this kind of success brings? Listen to this fascinating conversation as Paolo talks to Peter about every writer’s fantasy – all week!

Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
