A ravishing, generous-hearted novel (turned drama by HBO), My Brilliant Friend tells the story of Elena and Lila, born in a poor but vibrant neighbourhood in Naples. Ferrante has created both an unforgettable portrait of two young women seeking to carve out a destiny for themselves, and the story of a city - and a country - undergoing momentous change.
