Continua la saga "Dos amigas", la historia de la amistad de dos mujeres que recorre los anos mas importantes del siglo XX.

UNA SAGA MEMORABLE

"Ella me demostro que yo no habia ganado nada, simplemente porque en este mundo nuestro no habia nada que ganar... y lo que de verdad valia la pena era verse de vez en cuando para que el sonido enloquecido de nuestras mentes fuera rebotando de la una a la otra sin parar."

"Ella" es una mujer hermosa, alocada, y su nombre es Lila. Es la misma nina que conocimos en La amiga estupenda, el primer tomo de esta esplendida saga y ahora, recien cumplidos los dieciseis anos, acaba de casarse con un hombre al que desprecia. La otra, que la escucha, la sigue y sin querer la imita, es Lenu, una alumna brillante, empenada en aprender de los libros todo aquello que Lila aprende de la vida a secas. Asi, en este rebote de sensaciones, se desarrolla una amistad muy peculiar, una relacion donde la complicidad es ley. Basta una mirada de Lila para que Lenu entienda que pasa realmente en el dormitorio de su amiga. Basta una sonrisa para descubrir que se esconde tras esos vestidos caros que se acoplan al cuerpo de Lila como un guante y provocan a los hombres del barrio. Basta un gesto para que Lenu sepa que Lila va a cometer una locura y nadie sera capaz de detenerla.

Napoles, la ciudad que las ha visto crecer, es el escenario de esta comedia que tiene la fuerza de un drama y se quedara entre nosotros como una de las obras maestras de la literatura del siglo XXI.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Soon to be an HBO series, the follow-up to My Brilliant Friend in the New York Times bestselling Neapolitan quartet about two friends growing up in post-war Italy is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted family epic by Italy's most beloved and acclaimed writer, Elena Ferrante, "one of the great novelists of our time." (Roxana Robinson, The New York Times).

In The Story of a New Name, Lila has recently married and made her enteree into the family business; Elena, meanwhile, continues her studies and her exploration of the world beyond the neighborhood that she so often finds stifling. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all friendship: these are signs under which both women live out this phase in their stories. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila, and the pressure to excel is at times too much for Elena. Yet the two young women share a complex and evolving bond that is central to their emotional lives and is a source of strength in the face of life's challenges. In these Neapolitan Novels, Elena Ferrante, the acclaimed author of The Days of Abandonment, gives readers a poignant and universal story about friendship and belonging.

Ferrante is one of the world's great storytellers. With the Neapolitan quartet she has given her readers an abundant, generous, and masterfully plotted page-turner that is also a stylish work of literary fiction destined to delight readers for many generations to come.
