For next month’s book club, we’ll be reading My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante (336 pages). A modern masterpiece from one of Italy’s most acclaimed authors, this novel 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. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighbourhood, a city and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her two protagonists.

This book is number 1 in the 4 book Neapolitan series, so if you like it, there is more to come as the lives of the main characters are followed in 3 more books!

Cost for Members: Free!
Cost for Guests: 5 euro p.p.
