In the end I really went there, in the Himalayas. Not to climb the peaks, as I dreamed when I was a child, but to explore the valleys“.

After the success of “Le otto montagne”/”De åtta bergen” and the literature award Premio Strega in 2017, Paolo Cognetti returns to the mountains with a new poetic novel.

Utan att någonsin nå toppen: min vandring i Himalaya” is the illustrated and detailed story of the journey that the Italian author made at the end of his fortieth year of age together with his friends Nicola Magrin, who is a painter, Remigio, who has always lived in the Alps where Cognetti usually spends many months every year, and a group of men and animals.

The novel was published in Sweden by Contempo in 2019, with the support of C.M. Lerici Foundation.
