My Brilliant Friend

Description

A gorgeous gift edition of the first novel in the much-loved Neapolitan series. The story of Elena and Lila begins in the 1950s in a poor but vibrant neighbourhood on the outskirts of Naples. They learn to rely on each other and discover that their destinies are bound up in the intensity of their relationship. Elena Ferrante's piercingly honest portrait of two girls' path into womanhood is also the story of a nation and a meditation on the nature of friendship itself. My Brilliant Friend is a modern masterpiece, the work of one of Italy's great storytellers.
