The Story of the Lost Child
Elena Ferrante, trans. from the Italian by Ann Goldstein(Europa)
For the second straight year, we’re including an installment of Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels in our top 10. The series wraps up with The Story of the Lost Child, which finds protagonist Elena using biographical details from her fiery friend Lila’s life in her own work. A much-anticipated entry and well worth the wait.
