The author of the Neapolitan quartet and the Pulitzer prize-winning novelist discuss identity, ambition, truth and the convulsive urge to write. * The Guardian * In the Margins makes the seemingly arcane problems of the writer feel immediate and vivid. Reading it is a pleasure. * The Times * In this slim volume of four essays, Elena Ferrante explores her art and influences. In the Margins illuminates the themes that characterise her novels: intense female friendships, mother-daughter relationships and betrayal.. If theres any lingering doubt about Ferrantes gender, this homage to female talent, impeccably translated by Ann Goldstein, suggests otherwise. * The Financial Times * Ferrante fans will open this slim new book with eagerness. * The Sunday Times * Ferrante cant help but arouse intrigue and admiration. * The Observer * "Ferrante reflects on style, her literary influences, the arduous journey of women in literature and details the struggles shes faced as a fiction writer in this crisp essay collection." * The New York Times * A rare peek behind the curtain of the creative process of one of our most elusive is nothing short of a thrill to have light shed on her magic. * Irish Times * "A fascinating line flows directly into her novels from her contentions that women have historically been seen as excessive and that their words "get lost in the wind". * The Telegraph * At some point, reading Ferrantes novels, the fictional universe and that inside your head seem to melt into each other. Such is the power, and truth, of her writing. In the Margins shines a little light on where, exactly, it all came from but not too brightly. The mystery, you feel, should endure; the deeper meaning should remain opaque and oblique. * Irish Independent * Ferrante reflects on style, her literary influences, the arduous journey of women in literature and details the struggles shes faced as a fiction writer in this crisp essay collection. * New York Times Book Review * "A fascinating peek into Ferrantes process, one that opens up intellectual rabbit holes and as many new questions as it answers." * The Paris Review * The author explores the truth behind womens writing. * Stylist * Ranging from philosophical to practical, the essays give the reader an insight into the enigmatic author's mind, and include an exploration of what a writer is. * BBC Culture * "In the Margins is the culmination of [Ferrante's] thought and of decades of narrative enterprise. * Reading in Translation * In the Margins is nothing if not a meditation on learning how to use freedom within the constraints of form.those fascinated with the struggles and joys of creation might find in it quite a few treasures. * The Critic * Highlighting the power of the written word, this is a deeply captivating, insightful and immersive collection, providing a fascinating account into Ferrantes writing life; the perfect influence-in-waiting for anyone who shares a passion for both reading and writing. * Buzz Magazine * You don't need to have read the Italian author's blockbuster Neapolitan novels to enjoy this, her third foray into non-fiction. * Irish News *
