"Elena Ferrante may be the best contemporary novelist you have never heard of... If the best prose is like glass communicating without calling attention to itself Ms Ferrante's is crystal, and her storytelling both visceral and compelling" --The Economist 'While this trilogy is providing a captivating social history of mid-20th Neapolitan life it is primarily the story of a friendship.' --Lizzy's Literary Life
