Description
(A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2014) In this third Neapolitan novel, Lena and Lila have become women. Lila, who married at 16, has a young son; she has left her husband and the comforts that marriage brought and now works as a common laborer. Lena has moved away from the neighborhood, earned her college degree, and has published a successful novel, allowing her to inhabit a world of learned interlocutors and richly furnished salons. Both women have pushed back against the life of misery, ignorance, and submission that awaited them in Naples, and now can contemplate the sea of opportunities that opened up during the 1970s. Yet they are still very much bound to each other by complex, unbreakable ties. "Nothing quite like this has ever been published before," proclaimed London's Guardian newspaper about Elena Ferrante's irresistibly addictive Neapolitan novels, which chronicle the era of social upheaval in postwar Naples through the consuming, lifelong friendship of Lila and Lena. Ferrante—herself an enigma, who employs a pen name and shuns publicity—has given us an epic, brutally honest saga that explores aspects of female friendship we have rarely seen in literature. "When I read [the Neapolitan novels] I find that I never want to stop," wrote Molly Fischer in The New Yorker. "I feel vexed by the obstacles—my job, or acquaintances on the subway—that threaten to keep me apart from the books. I mourn separations (a year until the next one—how?). I am propelled by a ravenous will to keep going."
