<p class="p4"><span lang="EN-US">Elena Ferrante is the best-selling author of <em>My Brilliant Friend</em>, now an HBO original series. Collected here for the first time are the seeds of future novels, the timely reflections of this internationally beloved storyteller, the abiding preoccupations of a writer who has been called &ldquo;one of the great novelists of our time&rdquo; (<em>New York Times</em>).</span></p> <p class="p4"><span lang="EN-US">&ldquo;This is my last column, after a year that has scared and inspired me . . . I have written as an author of novels, taking on matters that are important to me and that&mdash;if I have the will and the time&mdash;I&rsquo;d like to develop within real narrative mechanisms.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="p4"><span lang="EN-US">With these words, Elena Ferrante bid farewell to her year-long collaboration with the <em>Guardian</em> newspaper. For a full year, she wrote weekly articles, the subjects of which had been suggested by <em>Guardian </em>editors, making the writing process a sort of prolonged interlocution. The subjects ranged from first love to climate change, from enmity among women to the experience of seeing her novels adapted for film and TV.</span></p> <p class="p4"><span lang="EN-US">Translated by Ann Goldstein, the acclaimed translator of Ferrante&rsquo;s novels, and accompanied by Andrea Ucini&rsquo;s intelligent, witty, and beautiful illustrations, this volume is a must for all curious readers.</span></p>
