My brilliant friend

Amy My Brilliant friend

The outskirts of Naples in the 1950s was a tough, brutal place to grow up, and growing up is hard enough. My Brilliant Friend is about Elena and Lila growing, changing and trying to find their place in their constrained world. The writing is beautiful; immersive, filled with danger, promise, hope, frustration, envy, longing and a strong sense of place.
