Best of 2015: Best Fiction Books


1.The Story of the Lost Child by Elena Ferrante (Europa Editions)


“Ferrante’s accomplishment in these novels is to extract an enduring masterpiece from dissolving margins, from the commingling of self and other, creator and created, new and old, real and whatever the opposite of real may be. […] Ferrante’s voice is very much her own, but it’s force is communal. Perhaps her quartet should be seen as one of the first great works of post-authorial literature.” — Judith Shulevitz, The Atlantic
