Besprechung
Praise for The Days of Abandonment

"A masterpiece...The magic of Days of Abandonment remains the fierce intelligence of its narrator."
-The Philadelphia Inquirer

"The writer is immensely self-aware and her frankness is stunning."
-The New York Times

"Ferrante's novels are tactile and sensual, visceral and dizzying."
-The Guardian

"Nothing you read about Elena Ferrante's work prepares you for the ferocity of it."
-Amy Rowland, The New York Times

"Ferrante's voice feels necessary. She is the Italian Alice Munro."
-Mona Simpson, author of Casebook and Anywhere But Here

"Elena Ferrante: the best angry woman writer ever!"
-John Waters, director

"[Ferrante] describes the female experience so intimately and so vividly that the reader feels like she could (and should) know the writer personally."
-Kat Stoeffel, New York Magazine

"Ferrante puts most other writing at the moment in the shade. She's marvelous"
-Booker Prize-winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North, Richard Flanagan
