Overview

Here is the dazzling saga of two women, the brilliant, bookish Elena and the fiery uncontainable Lila. In this book, life's great discoveries have been made, its vagaries and losses have been suffered. Through it all, the women's friendship, examined in its every detail over the course of four books, remains the gravitational center of their lives. Both women once fought to escape the neighborhood in which they grew up. Elena married, moved to Florence, started a family, and published several well-received books. But now, she has returned to Naples to be with the man she has always loved. Lila, on the other hand, never succeeded in freeing herself from Naples. She has become a successful entrepreneur, but her success draws her into closer proximity with the nepotism, chauvinism, and criminal violence that infect her neighborhood. Yet somehow this proximity to a world she has always rejected only brings her role as unacknowledged leader of that world into relief. Ferrante is one of the world's great storytellers. With the Neapolitan quartet she has given her readers an abundant, generous, and masterfully plotted page-turner that is also a stylish work of literary fiction destined to delight readers for many generations to come.

About the Author

Романистка появилась на свет в 1943 году в Неаполе, получила высшее филологическое образование. Существует версия, что Элена Ферранте – творческий псевдоним, под которым скрываются владельцы издательства Edizioni, супруги Сандро Ферри и Сандра Оццола. Писательница не опровергает эту информацию, однако, считает, что книги живут как автономные организмы, на которые не должна влиять личность автора. К тому же, сохраняя инкогнито, романистка не вступает в контакт со СМИ и концентрируется только на творчестве. Издатели Ферранте опубликовали книгу "La Frantumaglia", в которой собрали немногочисленные интервью и письма автора.
