The Shadow Thief

What if the child you once were met the adult you’ve become.
Would they get along?

An entertaining and moving novel about first loves, friendship, and dreams, The Shadow Thief tells the story of a boy who grows up with a special gift: he can steal other people’s shadows – and the shadows confide secrets in him. These dark reflections come and go, revealing hidden insights into the person they belong to.

As the narrator grows older, he learns to use his gift, helping him navigate schoolyard rivalries, his first love, and his encounters and friendships as a medical student. Through the mistakes he makes trying to improve other people’s lives, he comes to realize that it’s not too late to seek out his own childhood dreams.

The book contains moments of humor and lasting tenderness, relevant considerations on the nature of love, an innate sense of structure, and as ever, an astonishing imagination which brings to life the drama of the human condition. Once again, the magic works!”
