Reading notes for Man Booker International Prize shortlisted book The Story of the Lost Child.
The fourth and final instalment of the Neapolitan Novels series, this is the dazzling saga of the friendship between two women: brilliant, bookish Elena and fiery, uncontainable Lila. Both women fought to escape the neighbourhood in which they grew up: a prison of conformity, violence, and inviolable taboos. Against the backdrop of a Naples that is as seductive as it is perilous in a world undergoing massive change, this story of a lifelong friendship is told with unmatched honesty.
