OVER 14M OF THE NEAPOLITAN QUARTET SOLD WORLDWIDE Nothing quite like this has ever been published before.The Guardian This is high stakes, subversive literature.The Daily Telegraph With the publication of her Neapolitan Novels, (Ferrante) has established herself as the foremost writer in Italyand the world.The Sunday Times An unconditional masterpiece . . . I was totally enthralled.Jhumpa Lahiri An extraordinary epic.Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times To the uninitiated, Elena Ferrante is best described as Balzac meets The Sopranos and rewrites feminist theory.The Times Ferrantes writing seems to say something that hasnt been said before, in a way so compelling its readers forget where they are, abandon friends and disdain sleep.London Review of Books Stunning. An intense, forensic exploration of friendship.The Times Literary Supplement Set in the late 1960s and the 1970s, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay continues the story of the feisty and rebellious Lila and her lifelong friend, the brilliant and bookish Elena. Lila, after separating from her husband, is living with her young son in a new neighbourhood of Naples and working at a local factory. Elena has left Naples, earned a degree from an elite college, and published a novel, all of which has opened the doors to a world of learned and fascinating interlocutors. The era, with its dramatic changes in sexual politics and social costumes, with its seemingly limitless number of new possibilities, is rendered with breathtaking vigour. This third Neapolitan Novel is not only a moving story of friendship but also a searing portrait of a rapidly changing world.

Recensioner i media

"Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay continues Ferrante's raw exploration of female friendship and ambition, emotional violence and the enduring scars of the second world war." * The Guardian * "There is a savage honesty to the work of Elena Ferrante that is both unsettling and comforting at once. Here is an author who has poured every ounce of herself onto the page." * Irish Times * The older you get, the harder it is to recapture the intoxicating sense of discovery that comes when you first read George Eliot, Nabokov, Tolstoy or Colette. But this year it came again when I read Elena Ferrantes remarkable Neapolitan novels, chronicling a friendship between two women, Lila and Elena, that lasts for more than six decades. * The New Statesman * "Tolstoyan in its sweep and ambition.... Novel by novel, Ferrantes series is building into one of the great achievements of modern literature." * The Independent * "Ferrante depicts the pain of uncertainty but also its potential." * The Times Literary Supplement * "Nothing you read about Elena Ferrante's work prepares you for the ferocity of it." * The New York Times *
