Elena Ferrante: Genijalna prijateljica

Romani Elene Ferrante s razlogom su postali svjetske uspješnice i jedan od književnih fenomena ovog desetljeća, kako po odazivu publike u različitim zemljama, tako i po sudu kritike.
"Genijalna prijateljica" – prvi je dio romaneskne tetralogije o Eleni i Lili, pronicljivim i inteligentnim djevojkama iz Napulja koje žele stvoriti život u okrilju zagušujuće, nasilne kulture.
Ovdje donosimo uvodna poglavlja romana, a knjigu u cjelini - što preporučujemo - možete pročitati u izdanju "Profila".
Roman je s talijanskog prevela Ana Badurina.
