Book One in Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet A modern masterpiece from one of Italy’s most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante’s inimitable style lends itself perfectly to a meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. The story begins in the 1950s, in a poor but vibrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples. Growing up on these tough streets the two girls learn to rely on each other ahead of anyone or anything else. As they grow, as their paths repeatedly diverge and converge, Elena and Lila remain best friends whose respective destinies are reflected and refracted in the other. They are likewise the embodiments of a nation undergoing momentous change. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighborhood, a city, and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her protagonists, the unforgettable Elena and Lila. Ferrante is the author of three previous works of critically acclaimed fiction: The Days of Abandonment, Troubling Love, and The Lost Daughter. With this novel, the first in a tetralogy, she proves herself to be one of Italy’s great storytellers. She has given her readers a masterfully plotted page-turner, abundant and generous in its narrative details and characterizations, that is also a stylish work of literary fiction destined to delight her many fans and win new readers to her fiction.

La storia d'amore tra Natalie e Dan non sarebbe potuta iniziare in modo più romantico: l'incontro-scontro nella caffetteria della scuola in cui entrambi fanno volontariato, il pomeriggio trascorso a scambiarsi sogni e confidenze, il primo appuntamento – e il primo bacio – sotto le stelle. Tra loro è scattata subito un'intesa speciale, che a poco a poco si è trasformata in qualcosa di più. E a quel punto innamorarsi è stato facile, quasi inevitabile. Lui trovava intriganti le trasgressive creazioni artistiche di Natalie e contagiosa la sua gioia di vivere; lei era attratta dalla sua aria da bravo ragazzo e dalla sua determinazione a raggiungere il successo come documentarista. Ma questo era prima. Prima che le discussioni accese si trasformassero in litigi furibondi. Prima che una miriade di dispetti scavasse un abisso tra loro e portasse alla luce la vera natura della loro relazione. Ora Natalie vuole che lui sappia fino a che punto l'ha ferita e glielo scrive in 16 lettere. Leggendo nel corso di una sola, lunga giornata quella che è la sua versione della loro storia d'amore, Dan si rende conto che Natalie ha un ultimo messaggio per lui. Un messaggio che potrebbe mandare a rotoli la sua vita accuratamente programmata... Raccontato attraverso lettere, e-mail e SMS, 16 modi per spezzarti il cuore è un romanzo coinvolgente, che esplora le difficoltà di una storia d'amore fra adolescenti imperfetti.

Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers.

Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.
