This English translation has made it available to a wider audience, who have embraced it just as enthusiastically. Apparently inspired by the author's own childhood (Elena Ferrante is a pseudonym and the author's identity remains a secret), it tells the story of Elena and her friend Lila. Both are intelligent young girls growing up poor in post-war Italy. Elena manages to find ways to continue her education as she grows older, while Lila instead has to work.
