Una donna ancora giovane, serena e appagata, tutt’altro che inattiva nel cerchio sicuro della famiglia, viene abbandonata all’improvviso dal marito e precipita in un gorgo scuro e antico. Rimasta con i due figli e il cane, profondamente segnata dal dolore e dall’umiliazione, Olga, dalla tranquilla Torino dove si è trasferita da qualche anno, è risucchiata tra i fantasmi della sua infanzia napoletana, che si impossessano del presente e la chiudono in una alienata e intermittente percezione di sé. Comincia a questo punto una caduta rovinosa che mozza il respiro, un racconto che cattura e trascina fino al fondo più nero, più dolente dell’esperienza femminile. «La voce rabbiosa, torrenziale di questa autrice è qualcosa di raro». (The New York Times) «Ho letto questo romanzo in un giorno, obbligandomi a prendere respiro come fa un nuotatore. I giorni dell’abbandono è stellare». (Alice Sebold, autrice di Amabili resti)

"She is among the greatest Italian authors of recent years."-Corriere della Sera "Ferrante dissects the personal microcosm so well, and with awesome lucidity and precision shows us the meanderings of a woman's mind, the suffering that accompanies being abandoned, and the awful rumbling of time passing."-El Mundo "Elena Ferrante has given us a startlingly beautiful novel of exceptional and bold strength."-Il Manifesto "Severe and rigorously unsentimental, packed full of passages written with dizzying intensity at a rare and acute pitch. Ferrante is at her best when her writing holds tight to those nagging, niggling obsessions that make up our mental landscapes."-La Stampa A national bestseller for almost an entire year, The Days of Abandonment shocked and captivated its Italian public when first published. It is the gripping story of a woman's descent into devastating emptiness after being abandoned by her husband with two young children to care for. When she finds herself literally trapped within the four walls of their high-rise apartment, she is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal.

A Multitude of Women looks at the ways in which both Italian literary tradition and external influences have assisted Italian women writers in rethinking the theoretical and aesthetic ties between author, text, and readership in the construction of the novel. Stefania Lucamante discusses the valuable contributions that Italian women writers have made to the contemporary novel and illustrates the relevance of the novelistic examples set by their predecessors. She addresses various discursive communities, reading works by Di Lascia, Ferrante, Vinci, and others with reference to intertextuality and the theories of Elsa Morante and Simone de Beauvoir. This study identifies a positive deviation from literary and ideological orthodoxy, a deviation that helps give meaning to the Italian novel and to transform the traditional notion of the canon in Italian literature. Lucamante argues that this is partly due to the merits of women writers and their ability to eschew obsolete patterns in narrative while favouring forms that are more attuned to the ever-changing needs of society. She shows that contemporary novels by women authors mirror a shift from previous trends in which the need for female emancipation interfered with the actual literary and aesthetic significance of the novel. A Multitude of Women offers a new epistemology of the novel and will appeal to those interested in women's writing, readership, Italian studies, and literary studies in general.

I primi tre romanzi di Elena Ferrante in un unico prezioso volume L'amore molesto I giorni dell'abbandono La figlia oscura «Ammirazione stupore e incredulità destò nel 1991 l'uscita dell'Amore molesto. Chi era questa scrittrice che si firmava Elena Ferrante e dichiarava di aver vissuto molto tempo a Napoli e poi in Grecia? Già in quel primo romanzo la sua voce era decisa nitida perfetta. Una voce che alla fitta trama coniugava l'atmosfera soffocante del romanzo poliziesco americano il gesticolare patetico e comico dei grandi personaggi di Samuel Beckett gli angoscianti dubbi sulla propria identità di Virginia Woolf e la confusa e allo stesso tempo cruciale caccia ai fantasmi di Henry James. Difficile dare un'etichetta a un tale romanzo: una donna di circa quarantacinque anni che di fronte all'improvvisa e misteriosa morte della madre tenta di appurare come si sono svolti i fatti. Undici anni dopo nel 2002 uscì I giorni dell'abbandono, opera meno oscura sebbene altrettanto cupa e di grande impatto; una peripezia di disamore solitudine e disperazione senza un briciolo di sentimentalismo senza una pagina superflua. Pubblico e critica tornarono a mostrarsi ancora più ammirati ed entusiasti. Nel 2006 fu pubblicato un terzo romanzo La figlia oscura, incentrato sui rapporti tra una madre e le sue due figlie». (Dall'Introduzione di Edgardo Dobry) Sull’Amore molesto: «Una storia sofisticata e complessa, crudele e intelligente». Dacia Maraini «Il grande libro su Napoli l’ha scritto Elena Ferrante». Franco Cordelli, Corriere della Sera «Una qualità alta, sorprendente». Enzo Siciliano Sui Giorni dell’abbandono: «La massima narratrice italiana dai tempi di Elsa Morante». Antonio D’Orrico, Sette/Corriere della Sera «La voce rabbiosa, torrenziale di questa autrice è qualcosa di raro». The New York Times «Ho letto questo romanzo in un giorno, obbligandomi a prendere respiro come fa un nuotatore. I giorni dell’abbandono è stellare». Alice Sebold Sulla Figlia oscura: «Il romanzo di Elena Ferrante è strepitoso». Concita de Gregorio, D/La Repubblica «Una formidabile scrittura».

Named one of The Guardian's "Best Books of 2016" From the author of My Brilliant Friend This book invites readers into Elena Ferrante’s workshop. It offers a glimpse into the drawers of her writing desk, those drawers from which emerged her three early standalone novels and the four installments of My Brilliant Friend, known in English as the Neapolitan Quartet. Consisting of over 20 years of letters, essays, reflections, and interviews, it is a unique depiction of an author who embodies a consummate passion for writing. In these pages Ferrante answers many of her readers’ questions. She addresses her choice to stand aside and let her books live autonomous lives. She discusses her thoughts and concerns as her novels are being adapted into films. She talks about the challenge of finding concise answers to interview questions. She explains the joys and the struggles of writing, the anguish of composing a story only to discover that that story isn’t good enough. She contemplates her relationship with psychoanalysis, with the cities she has lived in, with motherhood, with feminism, and with her childhood as a storehouse for memories, impressions, and fantasies. The result is a vibrant and intimate self-portrait of a writer at work.

"Elena Ferrante will blow you away."-Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones From the author of The Days of Abandonment, The Lost Daughter is Elena Ferrante's most compelling and perceptive meditation on womanhood and motherhood yet. Leda, a middle-aged divorce, is alone for the first time in years when her daughters leave home to live with their father. Her initial, unexpected sense of liberty turns to ferocious introspection following a seemingly trivial occurrence. Ferrante's language is as finely tuned and intense as ever, and she treats her theme with a fierce, candid tenacity.

Soon to be an HBO series, book three in the New York Times bestselling Neapolitan quartet about two friends in post-war Italy is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted epic by one of today's most beloved and acclaimed writers, Elena Ferrante, “one of the great novelists of our time.” (Roxana Robinson, The New York Times) In the third book in the Neapolitan quartet, Elena and Lila, the two girls whom readers first met in My Brilliant Friend, have become women. Lila married at sixteen and has a young son; she has left her husband and the comforts her marriage brought and now works as a common laborer. Elena has left the neighborhood, earned her college degree, and published a successful novel, all of which has opened the doors to a world of learned interlocutors and richly furnished salons. Both women are pushing against the walls of a prison that would have seen them living a life of misery, ignorance and submission. They are afloat on the great sea of opportunities that opened up during the nineteen-seventies. Yet they are still very much bound to each other by a strong, unbreakable bond. 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.
