JUNE 2019: I finally went down the Ferrante wormhole! To my surprise, my favorite character is Naples. The way she depicts the widespread poverty and violence after WWII and how that affected the city's working class is striking. I found a great Time Magazine article about the history of Naples in conversation with these novels, which I really suggest. I've started book two and I am kind of lukewarm about it so far. Did anyone else feel that way?
