About the Author

Elena Ferrante είναι το λογοτεχνικό ψευδώνυμο μιας σύγχρονης Ιταλίδας συγγραφέως που η πραγματική της ταυτότητα δεν έχει αποκαλυφθεί. Το μυθιστόρημά της "L' amore molesto" ("Βάναυση αγάπη", ελλ. εκδ. Perugia, 1997), έγινε ταινία το 1995 από τον σκηνοθέτη Mario Martone. Το επόμενο μυθιστόρημά της, "Μέρες εγκατάλειψης" (ελλ. εκδ. Άγρα, 2004), ήταν ένα από τα πιο επιτυχημένα λογοτεχνικά έργα στην Ιταλία το 2002, στο οποίο βασίστηκε η οµώνυµη ταινία του Μάριο Μαρτόνε. Έχει γράψει µεταξύ άλλων το βιβλίο "La frantumaglia, στο οποίο αφηγείται τη συγγραφική της εµπειρία, καθώς κι ένα διήγηµα για παιδιά". Το 2011 εκδόθηκε το πρώτο βιβλίο της Tετραλογίας της Νάπολης µε τίτλο "Η υπέροχη φίλη µου" (ελλ. εκδ. Πατάκης, 2016) που κατέκτησε παγκοσµίως κοινό και κριτικούς.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Elena Ferrante and The Neapolitan Novels

“Everyone should read anything with Ferrante’s name on it.” —The Boston Globe
“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 Friend took 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 of Olive Kitteridge
“Elena Ferrante will blow you away.” —Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones
“Ferrante’s emotional and carnal candor are so potent." —Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“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 tackles girlhood and friendship with amazing force.”— Gwenyth Paltrow
“Elena Ferrante may be the best contemporary novelist you’ve never heard of”— The Economist
“[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
“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
“Elena Ferrante’s THE STORY OF A NEW NAME, book two in her Naples series. Two words. Read it.” —Ann Hood, author of The Obituary Writer
“Ferrante writes with a ferocious, intimate urgency.” —Susanna Sonnenberg, author of Her Last Death: A Memoir
The Days of Abandonment is a powerful, heartrending novel.” —Jhumpa Lahiri, author of The Lowlands
“I am such a fan of Ferrante’s work, and have been for quite a while.” —Jennifer Gilmore, author of The Mothers
“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…Imagine if Jane Austen got angry and you'll have some idea of how explosive these works are.” —John Freeman, The Australian
“The women’s fraught relationship and shifting fortunes are the life forces of the poignant book” — Publisher’s 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
