Praise for Elena Ferrante andThe Neapolitan Novels
The United States
Ferrante s novels are intensely, violently personal, and because of this they seem to dangle bristling key chains of confession before the unsuspecting reader. James Wood, The New Yorker
One of the more nuanced portraits of feminine friendship in recent memory. Megan O Grady, Vogue
Amazing! My Brilliant Friendtook my breath away. If I were president of the world I would make everyone read this book. It is so honest and right and opens up heart to so much. Reading Ferrante reminded me of that child-like excitement when you can t look up from the page, when your eyes seem to be popping from your head, when you think: I didn t know books could do this! Elizabeth Strout, author ofOlive Kitteridge
I like the Italian writer, Elena Ferrante, a lot. I've been reading all her work and all about her. John Waters, actor and director
Elena Ferrante may be the best contemporary novelist you ve never heard of The Economist
Ferrante s freshness has nothing to do with fashion it is imbued with the most haunting music of all, the echoes of literary history. The New York Times Book Review
I am such a fan of Ferrante s work, and have been for quite a while. Jennifer Gilmore, author ofThe Mothers
The women s fraught relationship and shifting fortunes are the life forces of the poignant book Publisher s Weekly
When I read [the Neapolitan novels] I find that I never want to stop. 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. Molly Fischer , The New Yorker
[Ferrante s Neapolitan Novels] don t merely offer a teeming vision of working-class Naples, with its cobblers and professors, communists and mobbed-up businessmen, womanizing poets and downtrodden wives; they present one of modern fiction s richest portraits of a friendship. John Powers , Fresh Air, NPR

Elena Ferrante is one of the great novelists of our time. Her voice is passionate, her view sweeping and her gaze basilisk . . . In these bold, gorgeous, relentless novels, Ferrante traces the deep connections between the political and the domestic. This is a new version of the way we live now one we need, one told brilliantly, by a woman. Roxana Robinson , The New York Times Book Review

An intoxicatingly furious portrait of enmeshed friends Lila and Elena, Bright and passionate girls from a raucous neighborhood in world-class Naples. Ferrante writes with such aggression and unnerving psychological insight about the messy complexity of female friendship that the real world can drop away when you re reading her. Entertainment Weekly

Ferrante seasons the prose with provocative perceptions not unlike the way Proust did. Shelf Awareness

It would be difficult to find a deeper portrait of women s friendship than the one in Ferrante s Neapolitan novels, which unfold from the fifties to the twenty-first century to tell a single story with the possessive force of an origin myth. Megan O Grady , Vogue

Ferrante s writing is so unencumbered, so natural, and yet so lovely, brazen, and flush. The constancy of detail and the pacing that zips and skips then slows to a real-time crawl have an almost psychic effect, bringing you deeply into synchronicity with the discomforts and urgency of the characters emotions. Ferrante is unlike other writers not because she s innovative, but rather because she s unselfconscious and brutally, diligently honest. Minna Proctor , Bookforum

Ferrante can do a woman s interior dialogue like no one else, with a ferocity that is shockingly honest, unnervingly blunt. Booklist

The truest evocation of a complex and lifelong friendship between women I ve ever read. Emily Gould , author of Friendship

Elena Ferrante is the author of several remarkable, lucid, austerely honest novels . . . My Brilliant Friend is a large, captivating, amiably peopled bildungsroman. James Wood , The New Yorker

Compelling, visceral and immediate . . . a riveting examination of power . . . The Neapolitan novels are a tour de force. Jennifer Gilmore , The Los Angeles Times

Those Who Leave and Those Who Staysurpasses the rapturous storytelling of the previous titles in the Neapolitan Novels. Publishers Weekly( starred review )

Ferrante s voice feels necessary. She is the Italian Alice Munro. Mona Simpson , author of Casebook and Anywhere But Here

Elena Ferrante will blow you away. Alice Sebold , author of The Lovely Bones

The Days of Abandonmentis a powerful, heartrending novel. Jhumpa Lahiri, Pulitzer-prize winning author of The Lowland

The Neapolitan novel cycle is an unconditional masterpiece . . . I read all the books in a state of immersion; I was totally enthralled. There was nothing else I wanted to do except follow the lives of Lila and Lenu to the end. Jhumpa Lahiri, Pulitzer-prizewinning author of The Lowland

Reading Ferrante reminded me of that child-like excitement when you can t look up from the page, when your eyes seem to be popping from your head, when you think: I didn t know books could do this! Elizabeth Strout, Pulitzer-prize winning author of The Burgess Boys

Elena Ferrante: the best angry woman writer ever! John Waters, director

The feverish speculation about the identity of Elena Ferrante betrays an understandable failure of imagination: it seems impossible that right now somewhere someone sits in a room and draws up these books. Palatial and heartbreaking beyond measure, the Neapolitan novels seem less written than they do revealed. One simply surrenders. When the final volume appears may that day never come! they re bound to be acknowledged as one of the most powerful works of art, in any medium, of our age. Gideon Lewis-Kraus, author of A Sense of Direction

Ferrante tackles girlhood and friendship with amazing force. Gwyneth Paltrow, actor

Elena Ferrante s The Story of a New Name. Book two in her Naples trilogy. Two words: Read it. Ann Hood, writer (from Twitter)

Ferrante continues to imbue this growing saga with great magic. Booklist( starred review )

One of Italy s best contemporary novelists. ? TheSeattle Times
Ferrante s emotional and carnal candor are so potent. Janet Maslin , The New York Times

Elena Ferrante s gutsy and compulsively readable new novel, the first of a quartet, is a terrific entry point for Americans unfamiliar with the famously reclusive writer, whose go-for-broke tales of women s shadow selves those ambivalent mothers and seething divorcees too complex or unseemly for polite society (and most literary fiction, for that matter) shimmer with Balzacian human detail and subtle psychological suspense . . . The Neapolitan novels offer one of the more nuanced portraits of feminine friendship in recent memory from the make-up and break-up quarrels of young girls to the way in which we carefully define ourselves against each other as teens Ferrante wisely balances her memoir-like emotional authenticity with a wry sociological understanding of a society on the verge of dramatic change. Megan O Grady , Vogue

My Brilliant Friend is a sweeping family-centered epic that encompasses issues of loyalty, love, and a transforming Europe. This gorgeous novel should bring a host of new readers to one of Italy s most acclaimed authors. TheBarnes and Noble Review

Ferrante draws an indelible picture of the city s mean streets and the poverty, violence and sameness of lives lived in the same place forever . . . She is a fierce writer. Shelf Awareness

Ferrante transforms the love, separation and reunion of two poor urban girls into the general tragedy of their city. The New York Times

Beautifully translated by Ann Goldstein . . . Ferrante writes with a ferocious, intimate urgency that is a celebration of anger. Ferrante is terribly good with anger, a very specific sort of wrath harbored by women, who are so often not allowed to give voice to it. We are angry, a lot of the time, at the position we re in whether it s as wife, daughter, mother, friend and I can think of no other woman writing who is so swift and gorgeous in this rage, so bracingly fearless in miningfury. Susanna Sonnenberg , TheSan Francisco Chronicle

Everyone should read anything with Ferrante s name on it. The Boston Globe

The through-line in all of Ferrante s investigations, for me, is nothing less than one long, mind-and-heart-shredding howl for the history of women (not only Neapolitan women), and its implicit j accuse . . . Ferrante s effect, critics agree, is inarguable. Intensely, violently personal and brutal directness, familial torment is how James Wood ventures to categorize her descriptions that seem mild after you ve encountered the work. Joan Frank , TheSan Francisco Chronicle

Lila, mercurial, unsparing, and, at the end of this first episode in a planned trilogy from Ferrante, seemingly capable of starting a full-scale neighborhood war, is a memorable character. Publishers Weekly

An engrossing, wildly original contemporary epic about the demonic power of human (and particularly female) creativity checked by the forces of history and society. The Los Angeles Review of Books

Ferrante s own writing has no limits, is willing to take every thought forward to its most radical conclusion and backwards to its most radical birthing. The New Yorker

The United Kingdom
The Story of a New Name, like its predecessor, is fiction of the very highest order. Independent on Sunday

My Brilliant Friend, translated by Ann Goldstein, is stunning: an intense, forensic exploration of the friendship between Lila and the story s narrator, Elena. Ferrante s evocation of the working-class district of Naples where Elena and Lila first meet as two wiry eight-year-olds is cinematic in the density of its detail. The Times Literary Supplement

This is a story about friendship as a mass of roiling currents love, envy, pity, spite, dependency and Schadenfreude coiling around one another, tricky to untangle. Intelligent Life

Elena Ferrante may be the best contemporary novelist you have never heard of. The Italian author has written six lavishly praised novels. But she writes under a pseudonym and will not offer herself for public consumption. Her characters likewise defy convention . . . Her prose is crystal, and her storytelling both visceral and compelling. The Economist

Ferrante is an expert above all at the rhythm of plotting: certain feuds and oppositions are kept simmering and in abeyance for years, so that a particular confrontation a particular scene can be many hundreds of pages in coming, but when it arrives seems at once shocking and inevitable. The Independent

Italy

Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay evokes the vital flux of a heartbeat, of blood flowing through our veins. La Repubblica

We don t know who she is, but it doesn t matter. Ferrante s books are enthralling self-contained monoliths that do not seek friendship but demand silent, fervid admiration from her passionate readers . . . The thing most real in these novels is the intense, almost osmotic relationship that unites Elena and Lila, the two girls from a neighborhood in Naples who are the peerless protagonists of the Neapolitan novels. Famiglia Cristiana

Today it is near impossible to find writers capable of bringing smells, tastes, feelings, and contradictory passions to their pages. Elena Ferrante, alone, seems able to do it. There is no writer better suited to composing the great Italian novel of her generation, her country, and her time than she. Il Manifesto

Elena Ferrante is a very great novelist . . . In a world often held prisoner to minimalism, her writing is extremely powerful, earthy, and audacious. Francesca Marciano, author ofThe Other Language

Regardless of who is behind the name Elena Ferrante, the mysterious pseudonym used by the author of the Neapolitan novels, two things are certain: she is a woman and she knows how to describe Naples like nobody else. She does so with a style that recalls an enchanted spider web with its expressive power and the wizardry with which it creates an entire world. Huffington Post(Italy)

A marvel that is without limits and beyond genre. Il Salvagente
Elena Ferrante is proving that literature can cure our present ills; it can cure the spirit by operating as an antidote to the nervous attempts we make to see ourselves reflected in the present-day of a country that is increasingly repellent. Il Mattino
My Brilliant Friend flows from the soul like an eruption from Mount Vesuvio. La Repubblica

Australia

No one has a voice quite like Ferrante s. Her gritty, ruthlessly frank novels roar off the page with a barbed fury, like an attack that is also a defense . . . Ferrante s fictions are fierce, unsentimental glimpses at the way a woman is constantly under threat, her identity submerged in marriage, eclipsed by motherhood, mytholog...

Reseña del editor:

The second book, following last year s My Brilliant Friend, featuring the two friends Lila and Elena. The two protagonists are now in their twenties. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila. Meanwhile, Elena continues her journey of self-discovery. The two young women share a complex and evolving bond that brings them close at times, and drives them apart at others. Each vacillates between hurtful disregard and profound love for the other. With this complicated and meticulously portrayed friendship at the center of their emotional lives, the two girls mature into women, paying the cruel price that this passage exacts."

Descripción Europa Editions, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 208 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Book Two in Elena Ferrante s Neapolitan Quartet In 2012, Elena Ferrante s My Brilliant Friend introduced readers to the unforgettable Elena and Lila, whose lifelong friendship provides the backbone for the Neapolitan Novels. The Story of a New Name is the second book in this series. With these books, which the New Yorker s James Wood described as -large, captivating, amiably peopled.a beautiful and delicate tale of confluence and reversal, - Ferrante proves herself to be one of Italy s most accomplished storytellers. She writes vividly about a specific neighborhood of Naples from the late-1950s through to the current day and about two remarkable young women who are very much the products of that place and time. Yet in doing so she has created a world in which readers will recognize themselves and has drawn a marvelously nuanced portrait of friendship. In The Story of a New Name, Lila has recently married and made her enteree into the family business; Elena, meanwhile, continues her studies and her exploration of the world beyond the neighborhood that she so often finds stifling. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all friendship: these are signs under which both women live out this phase in their stories. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila, and the pressure to excel is at times too much for Elena. Yet the two young women share a complex and evolving bond that is central to their emotional lives and is a source of strength in the face of life s challenges. In these Neapolitan Novels, Elena Ferrante, the acclaimed author of The Days of Abandonment, gives readers a poignant and universal story about friendship and belonging.
