Happy Elena Ferrante Day!


The first day of September means many things to many people (the end of summer? back to school?) but here at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, it marks the release date of Elena Ferrante's fervently-anticipated new novel (and the conclusion to her universally-acclaimed Neapolitan Tetralogy), The Story of the Lost Child

Let me say, it was a real pleasure to call all of the customers who placed a special order for this book -- everyone was ecstatic to hear that their copies were here (as were many of our staff). No question: Ferrante has gone from "one of Italy’s best-known least-known contemporary writers" (according to James Woods in 2013) to a bona fide global sensation. Granta said of her, "If you haven't read Elena Ferrante, it's like not having read Flaubert in 1856," and The Independent wrote that "Ferrante's series is building into one of the great achievements of modern literature." 

Find out what the fuss is about, if you haven't already!
