HuffPost Arts & Culture: 30 Books You Need to Read Before You Turn 30: "this novel not only brings to life the pleasures and difficulties of intimacy, but also the stubborn nature of fate."

Date: Jun 10 2015

The first in a mysterious Italian author’s series about the intertwined lives of two female friends, this novel not only brings to life the pleasures and difficulties of intimacy, but also the stubborn nature of fate. As narrator Elena and her childhood comrade Lila attempt to escape the violent, patriarchal strictures of Neapolitan life through education and romance respectively, they learn that doing so would require much more than objective success.
