3.89 · Rating details · 106,873 Ratings · 11,743 Reviews
A modern masterpiece from one of Italy's most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense and generous hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante's inimitable style lends itself perfectly to a meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighbourhood, a city and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her two protagonists.

Judy Yarborough | 7 comments Sweet Pam,

How are you now?

We missed your input in April. I wanted to like Our Brilliant Friend but have not managed to yet!

Don’t think I can come this month. Maybe we can all regather in June.

I’ve been reading some Sally Solare mysteries recently. They are set in CA with Italian menus and siciliano ingredients. You may enjoy them.

Dear Madam President is a good read, as well.

Happy Summer🍒


Laura | 54 comments Hi Judy,
We'll miss you at book club look forward to seeing you in June! Happy summer indeed! :)
