Description: "She is among the greatest Italian authors of recent years."-"-""Corriere della Sera "Ferrante dissects the personal microcosm so well, and with awesome lucidity and precision shows us the meanderings of a woman's mind, the suffering that accompanies being abandoned, and the awful rumbling of time passing."-"-""El Mundo "Elena Ferrante has given us a startlingly beautiful novel of exceptional and bold strength."-"-""Il Manifesto "Severe and rigorously unsentimental, packed full of passages written with dizzying intensity at a rare and acute pitch. Ferrante is at her best when her writing holds tight to those nagging, niggling obsessions that make up our mental landscapes."-"-""La Stampa A national bestseller for almost an entire year, "The Days of Abandonment shocked and captivated its Italian public when first published.
