The Literary Event of the Year

Billed as the literary event of the year by the publisher, Europa Editions, Elena Ferrante’s The Lying Life of Adults, has generated considerable buzz. Ferrante writes in Italian with most of her stories centered around Naples. Europa has enlisted top-notch translators to capture Ferrante’s unique literary style and the nuances of Italian. She has gained a reputation as one of the world’s premier writers. In The Lying Life of Adults, Giovanna’s father says she’s turning ugly and more like her Aunt Victoria, whom her parents despise. Trying to see herself as she truly is, Giovanna bounces between the Naples of refinement and the Naples of vulgarity. It’s not just the story but the quality of the writing that sets this book apart and makes its publication a literary event.
