A modern masterpiece from one of Italy's most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense and generous hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante's inimitable style lends itself perfectly to a meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighbourhood, a city and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her two protagonists.

  1. underbar historia skriven med värme och insikt
    Susanna, 26 december 2017

    En bok som beskriver dels en vänskap som har en spänst och energi men också ett samhälle där våld är en kraft som ligger bakom allt.

  2. Complex book worth reading twice
    Cathy L, 25 september 2017

    The first time I read this, I struggled at first with all the characters. But I thought the book was complex and beautifully written. After reading all four of the books in the series, I went back and read them again. The second reading was even better than the first. I recommend the book and I recommend taking the time to read them twice.

  3. Jättebra!
    Ulla Yngvesson, 14 juli 2016

    Lite trög i början med en "underligt tillkrånglad" översättning (?) från italienska till engelska, men innehållet blev ju ändå väldigt spännande.

  4. En bok man inte vill lägga ner

Praise for Elena Ferrante and The 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 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 "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 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 of The 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"It's just hypnotic. I could not stop reading it or thinking about it."--Hillary Clinton "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 shoc
