Chacal lThe author s name is giv 45 starsYes it s Lila who makes writing difficult Myife forced me to imagine what hers would have been if what happened to me had happened to her what use she would have made of my La conquista del aire luck And herife continuously appears in mine in the words that I ve uttered in which there s often an echo of hers in my Return of the Ascendant (Ascendant, less which is such because of her in my which is the yielding to the force of heressThis second book in Elena Ferrante s Neapolitan series continues the story of two childhood friends now young adults Lila and Elena Just as riveting as My Brilliant Friend The Story of a New Name captured my attention from page one It s uite dramatic really and I found that at times my head was spinning from the depth of the penetrating ook at the ives behaviors motivations and innermost thoughts of this pair Now a book that sets my head spinning can be a good thing and it was here An accomplished writer Stolen Childhood like Ferrante can draw you inike you are watching the drama play out right in front of you It did reuire however a step back from time to time to relax and catch my breath A bit of re energizing is necessary to take it all in Imagine yourself a teenager still with all the complexities of emotions the uncertainties the jealousies and the sometimes rash behaviors attributed to you and your friends and acuaintances But now add in a degree of poverty that most of us are fortunately not accustomed to violence that I pray most are not subjected to and the expectations and obstacles faced by women in the Lions Heat (Breeds late 1950s and early 1960s This is precisely what Lila and Elena deal with and what we as readers are privy to through theens provided to us Now if you haven t read the first book in the series you may want to stop reading this review at this point I m not revealing any spoilers but I personally didn t want any details before reading and you may feel the same I just want to talk about Lila and Elena a Growing a Sustainable City? little bit Throughout the novel I found myself reflecting on the two and who was better off who the stronger of the two characters etc I think the opening uote to my review really sums up the relationship between the two and I came to my own conclusion whether right or wrong that each completes the other Elena may have had educational opportunities but without the encouragement of Lila as well as a sense of competition she may not have had the drive to take advantage of those opportunities Lila finds herself in a marriage that does not suit her from the beginning but she will fight for something She has material possessions and after all wasn t that the dream these two had asittle girls Wasn t that the goal of going to school and receiving an education They wanted to become rich But happiness is elusive Perhaps riches are not enough Is it too Bright Ruin (Dark Gifts late to re make oneself and achieve something I think Lila can sustain herself knowing that Elena has been successful with her studies Maybe there are ways to rise above the poverty and the violence of the neighborhood other than money The narrative is written from Elena s point of view but we also get occasional glimpses from Lila s point of view through a series of notebooks she entrusted to Elena Notebooks that Elena was not given permission to read but that is neither here nor there If your best friend gave you her diary for safekeeping what would you do Maybe your friend gave you the diary because she couldn t express the deepest feelings in her heart and she knew that you would not be able to resist In this way you can share your thoughts in aess confrontational manner perhaps I don t really know but it was certainly a clever means for us to glean than just Elena s point of view here I don t know that I can say much about this book or this series it s one that I could contemplate for an indefinite amount of time So much happens in these pages but none of it is confusing There are a Radically Simple lot of names and variations of names for the same person A guide at the front of the book helps with this Otherwise it flows seamlessly and is written skillfully There is drama but I don t mean to say it s melodramatic Not in theeast I will admit that it is addicting Oh and that ending I will read the next in the series albeit with a bit of a break in between I finished Elena Ferrante s second volume a few hours ago and I m overwhelmed by her power She writes with her fingers stuck inside a electric plug She drills and drills all the way through the tiniest sensation till she reaches raw matter The story of the New Name

than me I saw it three times and Unlimited Sales Success lost a weekend before I could see straight againWhich is what may happen with Elena Ferrante Which is totally insane when you read these books objectively Or ateast I think it would be I have no way of really telling right now Her style is for the most part this totally bare bald faced thing that just tells you exactly what is happening to her characters in their mundane perfectly ordinary 1960s poor Italian ives The engine driving the drama that the things that keep happening keep right on damn happening to them and the second volume is no better Ferrante is as merciless as time marching on without a thought for her characters and their development who really could use some time in this stage of their personal development *or

absolutely guarantee you whatever you sign up for you should sign up for some shit happens and veryittle mercy granted because that s how it goes with Ferrante Sometimes I think that the main narrator

most of us would be covered by Belonging (Darkest Powers, late high school college and your first post college job As with the first novel the pages of the novel are covered over with a powerful

variety of ways in this case for characters Sylvan Summer Smart Workbook living in poverty and powerlessness most of them borne in forcibly upon you whether youike it or not Ferrante starts to introduce the gradual intrusion of politics and political identity tellingly it mostly shows in one tribal identity one way for the kids to divide themselves mostly in increased accusations of Fascist pig and Red communist thrown around in place of remarks on one s face and person and one kid going to one meeting and one going to another Elena also encounters this world but again not in itself but as a piece of currency in the game of the class system another piece of another kind of tribal mask that she s trying hard to don Professor Airota and his daughter had for example affectionate

Elena Ferrante is an absolute marvel This was utterly ravishing How does she do it Structurally her novels could hardly be conservative her subject matter the fraught friendship of two women has been done to death And yet you re constantly A Love Noire left with the feeling that no one has ever done what she does before Or ateast no one has done it with such searing insight and freshness Only a handful of writers can undress and get to the heart of women as World Literature and Dissent lucidly and thrillingly as Ferrante The first hundred pages especially were uite simply a dazzling display of a writer removing all the paint and powder from a woman s face mask and showing us the naked truths beneath Ferrante isike a kind of dream psychoanalysis She dispels all the fog unravels all the knots of a woman s deepest feeling and elucidates in simple Elizabeth Tanfield Carys History Of Edward II language the fount the hidden motive She always knows the secret as to why her women are doing what they do She once said in an interview that her ambition was to make the facts of ordinaryife gripping She achieves this by elucidating the emotionalmotivational source of many of these facts She also has this extraordinary talent for easing into her narrative and explaining difficult subjects without sacrificing a single beat of the fabulous driving momentum of her story There are no divergences in this novel every Comprehensive Dictionary of Psychoanalysis line is intrinsic to understanding Elena and Lila s struggles to achieve identity and autonomy For example the domestic violence in this novel is all the powerfully disturbing for theack of emphasis she gives it as if it s no extraordinary than a trip to the shops It makes the domestic violence in for example A Girl Is a Half formed Thing seem written up and theatrical In fact the ease with which she feeds hugely complex and pivotal experience into her narrative makes most other contemporary novelists seem a bit written up and theatrical There s a fleet footed breeziness to Ferrante s storytelling which is uite simply bewitching in its ease of assurance I put off reading this for ages because for some reason I thought it might be a disappointment after My Brilliant Friend On the contrary it s even better For your whole Simulation of Local Area Networks life youove people and you never really know who they are Nunzia to Len p215This one s a heartbreaker So exuisitely rendered that you l recognize your own hideous pain rising up to assail you again dear Reader your osses your miseries in the cause of Cisco love Ferrante makes universal the disparate pain alloving creatures suffer Toward the end when reality becomes too much for some of the characters they descend into scarily dissociative states that surprise and rattleThe novel s narrative pleasure is dizzying Every action naturally folds into the next the continuity is superb The clarity is extraordinary it never relents I found myself slowing down to take in the richness as I would when reading a poem That s the paradox Ferrante incites in readers between wanting to gallop through the stunning tale to just gobble it up Veganeasy! like cake and slowing down to take in the beauty of its structure andanguageIt s the early 1960s in Naples and Lina Carracci n e Cerullo is newly and miserably married and Romans living in virtual

age ten or so and was made to work in her father s shoe shop Her chance of a higher education gone even though she was the smartest girl in the school she then had to resort to other means of self advancement namely marriage In the early going here it s not going so well She feels not without justification that Stefano tricked her into marriage So she refuses him the great gift and he beats her

very much of Cesare Pavese s novellas particularly The Beach as found in The Selected Works One of Nino s sisters is even named Clelia Another work which harrowingly evokes the terrors of youthful sexual awakening is brought to mind by The Story Of A New Name and that s Knut Hamsun s Pan From Lieutenant Thomas Glahn s Papers See my reviews of both booksOn to Volume 3 I m still a bit puzzled about the phenomen that Ferrante s cycle is I don t find writing particuralry brilliant I think I didn t mark any single uote here and yet enjoyed the story I thought it was very predictible at times I could see what was coming and mostly hadn t been suprised by the course of events and still kept reading I can t say it was innovative or imaginative yet Ferrante managed to draw me in her world entirely Maybe I m mistaken but as I mentioned in the review of MBF I still haven t spotted in the second volume anything to not maintain that Ferrante is excorcising her past Her writing here feels too intimate too personal to think about this one only as a fictional story Perhaps her case is similar to other writers including Edward St Aubyn and his Patrick Melrose or My struggle by Karl Ove Knausg rd that I m reading now and this is her way to deal with the demons of the past a necessary step on the way to move on to finallyet goI ve returned to Lila and Elena story after over two years and I find myself still engaged in their story and difficult friendship the relationship that actually feels One Night at the Lake like challenging than supporting each others I was suprised how easily I entered theirives again and how much I rememberd from the previous tome Of course some names eluded me but the main protagonists didn t fade in my memory Like in the first installment this one bases on choices girls had made already and its aftermaths It s useless to describing the plot for you either buy this story or not either you re involved and concerned their fates or are bored and somewhat dismissive The Hero Next Door like you know such things still happen so what s the point to write hundreds pages about it I for my part was really engaged from the first page and thought that strength of the novelies just in this meticulous description this detailed dissection this ugly at times mundanity and sheer ordinariness of their Ask Me No Questions lives The Story of a New Name is aboutosing old self and identity and by adopting a new name the husband s name forging the new one It s about struggling to remain oneself in mostly man s world where masculine point of view is sanctity and it oneself in mostly man s world where masculine point of view is sanctity and it highly unreasonable to defy established order It s about violence womens were still subjected to and time honoured agreement to it It s about humilitian that not only fathers or husbands deliver but also women to themselves It s about attempting to break the vicious circle of poverty and misery
abandoning not family home not even a uarter and neighbourhood but also a city if it needsLila s figure is complicated one and she is far reckless rebellious and untamed than in the first volume she hurts and degradates Elena because she herself is a victim Their relationship once again is full of mutual resentments and envy and admiration and their sense of closeness and precarious Ferrante doesn t shy away from speaking of violence and abuse and rape and wife beaters she bluntly describes the ugly face of Lila s marriage and where and why it failed She ets us know the moment when the girls young women actually had to acknowledge the truth that no matter what they would do no matter how much money Lila has now or how educated Elena is they still would have no chance with thoroughbred that true class and natural grace is not to buy or imitateI think I m enjoying the story because it has an air of something tangible it s ike hearing about people you know in real Unscrewed life people you re supporting in their struggling I don t expect anything spectacular or flamboyant or bigger thanife And I think I l stop here This novel broke my heart It broke my heart so badly that I had to stop reading it for a few days to recoverThis is the second book of Elena Ferrante s Neapolitan series and it follows Elena and Lila from their teenage years and into their early 20s Their neighborhood in Naples is still rough and violent in the 1960s but Lila s marriage to the wealthy grocer Stefano allows her to climb out of the poverty The two friends were often competitive especially about school but in book two they are also competitive about menWhich brings me to why this novel broke my heart It s hard to talk about this book without spoilers so I shall hide it for those who don t want to know yet view spoilerElena who is our narrator has been in ove with Nino Sarratore since they were children Nino is smart and driven but also uiet and elusive While on vacation the beautiful Lila steals Nino away and the two begin an affair Lila insists she s fallen in His Convict Wife (Convict Wives love with Nino and wants toeave her husband Meanwhile Elena is so depressed over Toyota Management System losing her chance with Nino that she ends up in a situation where she s seduced you could also say raped by Nino s creepy father hide spoiler This is a marvelous novel with heart and soul Neapolitan heart and soul that is The second installment in the famous Elena Ferrante tetralogy for me anyway exceeded the first book in originality and plotine I found it moving and a very uick read despite its nearly 500 page The Perfect Indulgence lengthFor this review I wanted to focus on the title and the importance of names in Ferrante s work First off there is it seems to me a Proustian reference here to Le nom du pays Le nom which is the somewhat ambiguous subtitle of one of the early sections of La Recherche du Temps Perdu There are some similarities between Proust s style of describing Marcel s youth to how Ms Ferrante describes Elena s youth There is also a second subtle Proustian techniue weearn in this book that the narrator writes her first book and publishes it under her name Elena and we know.

There are so many Do Penguins Have Knees? layers to this story so much to unpack and yet still as this is book 2 of 4 so mucheft to discover I am incredibly impressed by Ferrante s ability to develop characters that are real real than almost any other characters I have read before They have ambition are flawed fight and The Outcast love and inspireThere is high probability I will come back and
