The 50 Best Independent Fiction and Poetry Books of 2014
Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, Elena Ferrante (Europa)
The independent translation “event of the year” may belong to Europa’s Elena Ferrante, the Neapolitan recluse and author of Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, the third book in the Neapolitan Novels trilogy. Ferrante is a ferocious writer, and this series of books is giving notice to the world that she is one of the best writers that we have — even if we have no idea who she is.
