The Story of the Lost Child (Ferrante)

I held off as long as I could. What a marvelous, layered conclusion to a quartet of great novels. With its absolutely pitch-perfect title, Ferrante continues her story of friendship and of growing up (the friends, the neighbors, the neighborhood, the city, the country). Along the way, she gives us two of the most powerful, nuanced, insightful and interesting female characters I’ve encountered in literature. I am sorry to see them go.

Now that I know how it ends, I can’t wait to go back to the beginning. I also can’t wait to see what Ferrante does next.
