The Story of the Lost Child

The Story of the Lost Child

by Elena Ferrante

Hardback Publication Date: 06/07/2016

The characters in the Neapolitan novels are not ¿fancy¿ women; they¿re for the most part not particularly educated, rich or sophisticated. What they are, always, is full of life and self-doubt and self-consciousness and ambition and love and hate and energy and sexuality. The new book, like the others, centers around the lifelong relationship between Elena and Lina ¿ frenemies from long before such a word existed. The Story of the Lost Child chronicles what happens when the women renew their friendship after many years of estrangement; ¿One morning, I woke up and thought of her without hostility for the first time in a long while,¿ as Elena says. Now they are beginning to face aging together.
