What are you waiting for? Let’s get reading!

Frantumaglia by Elena Ferrante (11/1)

Does this book even need an introduction? Elena Ferrante took the literary world by storm this summer with #FerranteFever as we all consumed her Neapolitan Novels in a reading frenzy. Before she got the chance to tell her own story herself, her true identity was exposed by journalist Claudio Gatti at the New York Book Review, to the dismay of Ferrante’s readers. Now, she tells her story herself.
