Elena ist schließlich doch nach Neapel zurückgekehrt, aus Liebe. Die beste Entscheidung ihres ganzen Lebens, glaubt sie, doch als sich ihr nach und nach die ganze Wahrheit über den geliebten Mann offenbart, fällt sie ins Bodenlose. Lila, die ihren Schicksalsort nie verlassen hat, ist eine erfolgreiche Unternehmerin geworden, aber dieser Erfolg kommt sie teuer zu stehen. Denn sie gerät zusehends in die grausame, chauvinistische Welt des verbrecherischen Neapels, eine Welt, die sie Zeit ihres Lebens verabscheut und bekämpft hat. Bei allen Verwerfungen und Rivalitäten, die ihre lange gemeinsamen Geschichte prägen – Lila und Elena halten einander die Treue, und fast scheint das Glück eine späte Möglichkeit. Aber beide haben sie übersehen, dass ihre hartnäckigsten Verehrer im Lauf der Jahre zu erbitterten Feinden geworden sind.

Book Four in Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet “Nothing quite like this has ever been published before,” proclaimed The Guardian newspaper about the Neapolitan Novels in 2014. Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, the third book in the series, was an international best seller and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. Its author was dubbed “one of the great novelists of our time” by the New York Times Book Review. This fourth and final installment in the series raises the bar even higher and indeed confirms Elena Ferrante as one of the world’s best living storytellers. Here is the dazzling saga of two women, the brilliant, bookish Elena and the fiery uncontainable Lila. In this book, both are adults; life’s great discoveries have been made, its vagaries and losses have been suffered. Through it all, the women’s friendship, examined in its every detail over the course of four books, remains the gravitational center of their lives. Both women once fought to escape the neighborhood in which they grew up—a prison of conformity, violence, and inviolable taboos. Elena married, moved to Florence, started a family, and published several well-received books. But now, she has returned to Naples to be with the man she has always loved. Lila, on the other hand, never succeeded in freeing herself from Naples. She has become a successful entrepreneur, but her success draws her into closer proximity with the nepotism, chauvinism, and criminal violence that infect her neighborhood. Yet somehow this proximity to a world she has always rejected only brings her role as unacknowledged leader of that world into relief. For Lila is unstoppable, unmanageable, unforgettable! Against the backdrop of a Naples that is as seductive as it is perilous and a world undergoing epochal change, this story of a lifelong friendship is told with unmatched honesty. Lila and Elena clash, drift apart, reconcile, and clash again, in the process revealing new facets of their friendship. The four volumes in this series constitute a long remarkable story that readers will return to again and again, and, like Elena and Lila themselves, every return will bring with it new discoveries.

Es sind die turbulenten siebziger Jahre und die beiden inzwischen erwachsene Frauen. Lila ist Mutter geworden und hat sich befreit und alles hingeworfen – den Wohlstand, ihre Ehe, ihren neuen Namen – und arbeitet unter entwürdigenden Bedingungen in einer Fabrik. Elena hat ihr altes neapolitanisches Viertel hinter sich gelassen, das Studium beendet und ihren ersten Roman veröffentlicht. Als sie in eine angesehene norditalienische Familie einheiratet und ihrerseits ein Kind bekommt, hält sie ihren gesellschaftlichen Aufstieg für vollendet. Doch schon bald muss sie feststellen, dass sie ständig an Grenzen gerät. Ganze Welten trennen die Freundinnen, doch gerade in diesen schwierigen Jahren sind sie füreinander da, die Nähe, die sie verbindet, scheint unverbrüchlich. Würde da nur nicht die langjährige Konkurrenz um einen bestimmten Mann immer deutlicher zutage treten.

Lila und Elena sind sechzehn Jahre alt, und sie sind verzweifelt. Lila hat noch am Tage ihrer Hochzeit erfahren, dass ihr Mann sie hintergeht – er macht Geschäfte mit den allseits verhassten Solara-Brüdern, den lokalen Camorristi. Für Lila, arm geboren und durch die Ehe schlagartig zu Geld und Ansehen gekommen, brechen leidvolle Zeiten an. Elena hingegen verliebt sich Hals über Kopf in einen jungen Studenten, doch der scheint nur mit ihren Gefühlen zu spielen. Sie ist eine regelrechte Vorzeigeschülerin geworden, muss aber feststellen, dass das, was sie sich mühsam erarbeitet hat, in ihrer neapolitanischen Welt kaum etwas gilt. Trotz all dieser Widrigkeiten beharren Lila und Elena immer weiter darauf, ihr Leben selbst zu bestimmen, auch wenn der Preis, den sie dafür zahlen müssen, bisweilen brutal ist. Woran die beiden jungen Frauen sich festhalten, ist ihre Freundschaft. Aber können sie einander wirklich vertrauen? Elena Ferrante hat einen Weltbestseller geschrieben. Ein Gipfelwerk der zeitgenössischen Literatur. Und einen Roman, den man erschüttert und begeistert liest!

Sie könnten unterschiedlicher kaum sein und sind doch unzertrennlich, Lila und Elena, schon als junge Mädchen beste Freundinnen. Und sie werden es ihr ganzes Leben lang bleiben, über sechs Jahrzehnte hinweg, bis die eine spurlos verschwindet und die andere auf alles Gemeinsame zurückblickt, um hinter das Rätsel dieses Verschwindens zu kommen. Im Neapel der fünfziger Jahre wachsen sie auf, in einem armen, überbordenden, volkstümlichen Viertel, derbes Fluchen auf den Straßen, Familien, die sich seit Generationen befehden, das Silvesterfeuerwerk artet in eine Schießerei aus. Hier gehen sie in die Schule, die unangepasste, draufgängerische Schustertochter Lila und die schüchterne, beflissene Elena, Tochter eines Pförtners, beide darum wetteifernd, besser zu sein als die andere. Bis Lilas Vater seine noch junge Tochter zwingt, dauerhaft in der Schusterei mitzuarbeiten, und Elena mit dem bohrenden Verdacht zurückbleibt, eine Gelegenheit zu nutzen, die eigentlich ihrer Freundin zugestanden hätte. Ihre Wege trennen sich, die eine geht fort und studiert und wird Schriftstellerin, die andere wird Neapel nie verlassen, und trotzdem bleiben Elena und Lila sich nahe, sie begleiten einander durch erste Liebesaffären, Ehen, die Erfahrung von Mutterschaft, durch Jahre der Arbeit und Episoden politischer Bewusstwerdung, zwei eigensinnige, unnachgiebige Frauen, die sich nicht zuletzt gegen die Zumutungen einer brutalen, von Männern beherrschten Welt behaupten müssen. Sie bleiben einander nahe, aber es ist stets eine zwiespältige Nähe: aus Befremden und Zuneigung, aus Rivalität und Innigkeit, aus Missgunst und etwas, das größer und stiller ist als Lieben. Liegt hier das Geheimnis von Lilas Verschwinden? Elena Ferrante hat ein literarisches Meisterwerk von unermesslicher Strahlkraft geschrieben, ein von hinreißenden Figuren bevölkertes Sittengemälde und ein zupackend aufrichtiges Epos – über die rettende und zerstörerische, die weltverändernde Kraft einer Freundschaft, die ein ganzes langes Leben währt.

Book Two in Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet In 2012, Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend introduced readers to the unforgettable Elena and Lila, whose lifelong friendship provides the backbone for the Neapolitan Novels. The Story of a New Name is the second book in this series. With these books, which the New Yorker's James Wood described as "large, captivating, amiably peopled...a beautiful and delicate tale of confluence and reversal," Ferrante proves herself to be one of Italy's most accomplished storytellers. She writes vividly about a specific neighborhood of Naples from the late-1950s through to the current day and about two remarkable young women who are very much the products of that place and time. Yet in doing so she has created a world in which readers will recognize themselves and has drawn a marvelously nuanced portrait of friendship. In The Story of a New Name, Lila has recently married and made her enterée into the family business; Elena, meanwhile, continues her studies and her exploration of the world beyond the neighborhood that she so often finds stifling. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all friendship: these are signs under which both women live out this phase in their stories. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila, and the pressure to excel is at times too much for Elena. Yet the two young women share a complex and evolving bond that is central to their emotional lives and is a source of strength in the face of life's challenges. In these Neapolitan Novels, Elena Ferrante, the acclaimed author of The Days of Abandonment, gives readers a poignant and universal story about friendship and belonging.

My Brilliant Friend is a ravishing, wonderfully written novel about a friendship that lasts a lifetime. The story of Elena and Lila begins in a poor but vibrant neighbourhood on the outskirts of Naples. The two girls learn to rely on each other ahead of anyone or anything else, sometimes to their own detriment, as each discovers more about who she is and suffers or delights in the throes of their intense friendship. There is a piercing honesty about Ferrante's prose that makes My Brilliant Friend a compulsively readable portrait of two young women, and also the story of a neighbourhood, a city and a country. Elena Ferrante was born in Naples. She is the author of seven novels: The Days of Abandonment, Troubling Love, The Lost Daughter, and the quartet of Neapolitan Novels: My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, and The Story of the Lost Child. Fragments, a selection of interviews, letters and occasional writings by Ferrante, will be published in early 2016. She is one of Italy’s most acclaimed authors. ‘The best thing I’ve read this year, far and away...She puts most other writing at the moment in the shade.’ Richard Flanagan ‘Ferrante tackles girlhood and friendship with amazing force.’ Gwyneth Paltrow ‘Read My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante—the Jane Austen of Italy.’ Jeffrey Archer 'Gutsy and compulsively readable...One of the more nuanced portraits of feminine friendship in recent memory...Ferrante wisely balances her memoir-like emotional authenticity with a wry sociological understanding of a society on the verge of dramatic change.' Vogue (US) 'Her novels are intensely, violently personal, and because of this they seem to dangle bristling key chains of confession before the unsuspecting reader...[A] beautiful and delicate tale of confluence and reversal.' James Wood, New Yorker 'Cinematic in the density of its detail.' Times Literary Supplement 'Elena Ferrante will blow you away.' Alice Sebold 'Ferrante's fictions are fierce, unsentimental glimpses at the way a woman is constantly under threat, her identity submerged in marriage, eclipsed by motherhood, mythologised by desire. Imagine if Jane Austen got angry and you'll have some idea of how explosive these works are.' Weekend Australian 'My Brilliant Friend is an engaging read, well translated from Italian, giving a vivid account of life in a poor suburb of Naples in the late 1950s...There is a lot more to find out about this interesting pair.' Otago Daily Times 'The first two Neapolitan novels [My Brilliant Friend and The Story of a New Name]...move far from contrivance, logic or respectability to ask uncomfortable questions about how we live, how we love, how we singe an existence in a deeply flawed world that expects pretty acquiescence from its women. In all their beauty, their ugliness, their devotion and deceit, these girls enchant and repulse, like life, like our very selves.' Sydney Morning Herald 'If you haven't read Elena Ferrante, it's like not having read Flaubert in 1856...Incontrovertibly brilliant.' Anne Meadows, editor of Granta 'The Neapolitan novels are smart, thoughtful, serious literature. At the same time, they are violent, suspenseful soap operas populated with a vivid cast of scheming characters...Ferrante’s novels are deeply personal and intimate, getting to the very heart of what it means to be a woman, a friend, a daughter, a mother.’ Debrief Daily ‘Once I succumbed, I was hooked.

Since the publication of the acclaimed My Brilliant Friend and The Story of A New Name, Elena Ferrante’s reputation has grown enormously. Her novels about the friendship between Lila and Elena, about the mysteries of human relationships, are utterly compelling. In Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, the two protagonists are now in their thirties. Lila, married at sixteen, has left her husband and the comforts of her marriage, and has now joined the workforce. Elena has left the neighbourhood in Naples, been to university, and published a successful novel, all of which has brought her into a wealthier, more cultured world. Both women are seizing opportunities to flee a life of poverty, ignorance and submission. Yet they are still very much bound to each other by an unbreakable bond. Elena Ferrante was born in Naples. She is the author of seven novels: The Days of Abandonment, Troubling Love, The Lost Daughter, and the quartet of Neapolitan Novels: My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, and The Story of the Lost Child. Fragments, a selection of interviews, letters and occasional writings by Ferrante, will be published in early 2016. She is one of Italy’s most acclaimed authors. Ann Goldstein is an editor at the New Yorker and a recipient of the PEN Renato Poggioli Translation Award. ‘[Ferrante’s] charting of the rivalries and sheer inscrutability of female friendship is raw. This is high stakes, subversive literature.’ Sunday Telegraph ‘In the past decade, no fiction writer has made it more necessary to think about the performative aspect of being a woman than Elena Ferrante. Her novels, written originally in Italian and translated beautifully by Ann Goldstein, are ferociously engaged with the ways in which a woman—as a daughter, a teenager, a lover, and, most dramatically, a mother—is a kind of person in drag, speaking through a costume that slowly becomes all that one knows of her...It’s Ferrante’s ability to capture both the mirror and the woman standing before it that makes her a writer to be reckoned with.’ John Freeman ‘Nothing you read about Elena Ferrante’s work prepares you for the ferocity of it...This is a woman’s story told with such truthfulness that it is not so much a life observed as it is felt.’ New York Times ‘Elena Ferrante is one of the great novelists of our time...In these bold, gorgeous, relentless novels, Ferrante traces the deep connections between the political and the domestic. This is a new version of the way we live now—one we need, one told brilliantly, by a woman.’ New York Times Sunday Book Review ‘When I read [the Neapolitan novels] I find that I never want to stop. I feel vexed by the obstacles—my job, or acquaintances on the subway—that threaten to keep me apart from the books. I mourn separations (a year until the next one—how?). I am propelled by a ravenous will to keep going.’ New Yorker ‘It is a testament to Ferrante’s achievement that, at the end of this third book and anticipating the fourth, it seems there’s limitless potential for Lina to reinvent herself again.’ Times Literary Supplement ‘Ferrante’s project is bold: her books chronicle the inner conflicts of intelligent women...Her writing has a powerful intimacy...a bona fide literary sensation–the famous writer nobody knows.’ Guardian UK ‘The best thing I’ve read this year, far and away...She’s marvellous.’ Richard Flanagan 'The Neapolitan novels are smart, thoughtful, serious literature. At the same time, they are violent, suspenseful soap operas populated with a vivid cast of scheming characters...Ferrante’s novels are deeply personal and intimate, getting to the very heart of what it means to be a woman, a friend, a daughter, a mother.’ Debrief Daily

Leda is a middle-aged, divorced mother devoted to her work as an English professor. After the departure of her grown-up daughters, she takes a holiday on the Italian coast. But after a few days things become unsettling; on the beach she encounters a family whose brash behaviour proves menacing. Leda is overwhelmed by memories of the difficult and unconventional choices she made as a mother and their consequences for herself and her family. The tale of a woman's rediscovery of herself soon becomes the story of a ferocious confrontation with the past. The Lost Daughter is a profound exploration of the conflicting emotions that tie women to their children. Elena Ferrante was born in Naples. She is the author of seven novels: The Days of Abandonment, Troubling Love, The Lost Daughter, and the quartet of Neapolitan Novels: My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, and The Story of the Lost Child.

Ann Goldstein has translated all of Elena Ferrante's work. She is an editor at the New Yorker and a recipient of the PEN Renato Poggioli Translation Award. 'Ferrante's gift for psychological horror renders it immediate and visceral.' New Yorker 'This superb and scary Italian writer...has blown the lid off tempestuous parent-child relations.' Seattle Times 'So refined, almost translucent, that it seems about to float away, in the end this piercing novel is not so easily dislodged from the memory.' Boston Globe 'It's Leda's voice that's hypnotic, and it's the writing that makes it that way. Ferrante can do a woman's interior dialogue like no one else, with a ferocity that is shockingly honest, unnervingly blunt.' Booklist 'Ferrante's prose is stunningly candid, direct and unforgettable. From simple elements, she builds a powerful tale of hope and regret.' Publishers Weekly ‘Ferrante’s uncompromising directness and her unflinching gaze cannot be faulted.’ Age/Sydney Morning Herald ‘With cold determination, Ferrante conveys both the selfishness and the courage that comes with admitting your own maternal shortcomings.’ New Zealand Listener
