Summary
My Brillant Friend is a rich and generous-hearted story about Elena and Lila, who grow up together in the 1950s in a poor neighbourhood on the outskirts of Naples. They learn to rely on each other and discover that their destinies are bound up in the intensity of their relationship. Elena Ferrante's piercingly honest portrait of two girls' path into womanhood is also the story of a nation and a meditation on the nature of friendship itself
