Book: 'My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante

**Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2015**

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.
