My BrillantT Friend 3
Elena and Lila became women. They became so very quickly: Lila got married at sixteen, she has a small son, she left her husband and her wealth, she works as a worker in very hard conditions; Elena left the neighborhood, studied at the Normale in Pisa and published a successful novel that opened the doors to a wealthy and cultured world. Both tried to force the barriers that wanted them closed in a destiny of misery, ignorance and submission. Now they sail, with the overwhelming rhythms to which Elena Ferrante has accustomed us, in the great open sea of the Seventies.
