Description

From the author of My Brilliant Friend “She is among the greatest Italian authors of recent years.”-Corriere della Sera “Ferrante dissects the personal microcosm so well, and with awesome lucidity and precision shows us the meanderings of a woman’s mind, the suffering that accompanies being abandoned, and the awful rumbling of time passing.”-El Mundo “Elena Ferrante has given us a startlingly beautiful novel of exceptional and bold strength.”-Il Manifesto “Severe and rigorously unsentimental, packed full of passages written with dizzying intensity at a rare and acute pitch. Ferrante is at her best when her writing holds tight to those nagging, niggling obsessions that make up our mental landscapes.”-La Stampa A national bestseller for almost an entire year, The Days of Abandonment shocked and captivated its Italian public when first published. It is the gripping story of a woman’s descent into devastating emptiness after being abandoned by her husband with two young children to care for. When she finds herself literally trapped within the four walls of their high-rise apartment, she is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal. show more
