The last saga of the incredible saga My brilliant friend by Elena Ferrante: The Lost Child

elena ferrante l'enfant perdue

What’s the story ?

Her books are best sellers around the work, yet Elena Ferrante remains eternally mysterious—ten million copies of her books are published. The literary saga tells the 50-year old love-hate story that unites two Neapolitan friends, Lila and Elena. In the poor districts of Naples, we encounter the two little girls in the 50: Lila, the very clever daughter of a cobbler, stops her studies and gets married, while Elena works hard to ward off misery.

Why should one rush out to buy this book ?

Because this book is the last instalment of the formidable saga My brilliant friend, with an intrigue that has nothing to envy from the three previous volumes, an ode to friendship!. As background to this tantalizing story, Elena Ferrante recalls an Italy torn between fascists, communists and the ongoing involvement of the Mafia. Fascinating.
