Reviews

Praise for The Neapolitan Novels

"Ferrante's Naples Quartet is anything but theater. It is the first genuine literary classic of the 21st century."--The Huffington Post

"One of modern fiction's richest portraits of a friendship."--John Powers, Fresh Air, NPR

"The Neapolitan Novels tell a single story with the possessive force of an origin myth." --Megan O'Grady, Vogue

"Elena Ferrante is one of the great novelists of our time...This is a new version of the way we live now - one we need, one told brilliantly, by a woman." --Roxana Robinson, The New York Times Book Review

"A strong sense of chiaroscuro characterises the tetralogy: the thuggish violence of the Neapolitan stradone, the political activism of the "years of lead", the corruption at every level of society."--Jane Shilling The Evening Standard (UK)
