Welcome to a small site about me, VENERO ARMANNO, and my last book BLACK MOUNTAIN.




Some positive responses:
‘This is unsettling reading, just like Ishiguro’s award-winning novel [Never Let Me Go], but Black Mountain works on many levels and rewards the reader. There is much to ponder in this dark, well-written book.’ Courier-Mail

‘What an amazing and amazingly powerful book. I think the way the narrative and the circumstances of the characters unfolds is profoundly moving and compelling (I could not put it down once I began and have consumed it in the most indulgent gulp). Extraordinary!’ author Ashley Hay

‘Armanno audaciously tackles big issues in this compelling story.’ Daily Telegraph

‘The layers of the novel are complex and intriguing.’ The Advertiser

‘An unsettling read [that] won’t be easily forgotten.’ The Big Issue

‘Rich, compelling and accessible.’ Canberra Times
