Read full description of the books:
Kate e Zoe se conheceram aos 19 anos, nas eliminatórias de um programa para jovens talentos do ciclismo de elite - um esporte que exige foco e comprometimento. Após mais de uma década, aos 32 anos, elas se preparam para enfrentar a última e mais grandiosa prova de suas vidas - os Jogos Olímpicos de Londres, em 2012. Amigas e também grandes rivais, Kate e Zoe são atletas no topo do ranking, lutando para vencer a competição mais importante do mundo. Com vidas marcadas pela tragédia, cada uma delas tem muito a perder, e as duas se veem diante do desafio de optar entre a família e a glória no esporte. 'Ouro' é uma história sobre os limites da resistência humana, tanto física quanto emocional, sobre maternidade e amor, e sobre o que nos permite, em nossas diferentes maneiras de agir, alcançar feitos memoráveis. O autor analisa as escolhas que são feitas quando a vida está em risco e tudo o que se ama está em jogo.

Q & A
What was your favourite childhood book?
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis
Which book has made you laugh?
Great Lies to Tell Small Kids by Andy Riley
Which book has made you cry?
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
What are your top five books of all time, in order or otherwise?
Mrs. Dalloway (Woolf)
Voyage au Bout de la Nuit (Céline)
The Road (McCarthy)
100 Years of Solitude (Garcia Márquez)
What is your favourite word?
"Nooba". It's a word peculiar to my family, although I can't remember where it came from or which of my kids coined it. To "do the nooba" is to muck around when you're supposed to be going to sleep. As in, "Stop doing the nooba, boo-boo, it's way past your bedtime." I like it because you can only say it with a smile.
Which fictional character would you most like to have met?
Sally Seton, Clarissa Dalloway's childhood companion, when we were all young.
Is there a particular book or author that inspired you to be a writer?
Definitely. In my teens it was Milan Kundera who made me realise how exciting it would be to write, and Primo Levi who made me realise how important it was, and Tibor Fischer who made me suspect the whole thing would be fun.
