ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
"Capii che ero arrivata fin là piena di superbia e mi resi conto che - in buona fede certo, con affetto - avevo fatto tutto quel viaggio soprattutto per mostrarle ciò che lei aveva perso e ciò che io avevo vinto. Lei naturalmente se ne era accorta fin dal momento in cui le ero comparsa davanti e ora stava reagendo spiegandomi di fatto che non avevo vinto niente, che al mondo non c'era alcunché da vincere, che la sua vita era piena di avventure diverse e scriteriate proprio quanto la mia, e che il tempo semplicemente scivolava via senza alcun senso, ed era bello solo vedersi ogni tanto per sentire il suono folle del cervello dell'una echeggiare dentro il suono folle del cervello dell'altra". Ecco "Storia del nuovo cognome", secondo romanzo del ciclo de "L'amica geniale". Ritroverete subito Lila ed Elena, il loro rapporto di amore e odio, l'intreccio inestricabile di dipendenza e volontà di autoaffermazione.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
The second in a tetralogy, book two rejoins narrator Elena Greco and her "brilliant friend" Lina Cerullo as they leave behind their claustrophobic Italian girlhood and enter the tumultuous world of young womanhood with all its accompanying love, loss, and confusion. Against the backdrop of l960s/70s Naples, the previously inseparable girls embark on diverse paths. At 16, Lila has married the prosperous local grocer, Stefano Carraci, only to discover at their wedding reception that he has already betrayed her and damned their union. Conversely Elena has chosen education, a less traditional route to free her from the stultifying village life. Lina asks Elena to hide a box of notebooks from her husband. Instead, she dumps them in the river but not without first reading them. Ferrante masterfully combines Elena's recollections of events with Lila's point of view as documented in her notebooks to drive the narrative. The women's fraught relationship and shifting fortunes are the life forces of this poignant book.
