A POWERFUL NEW NOVEL set in a divided Naples by ELENA FERRANTE, the New York Times best-selling author of My Brilliant Friend and The Lost Daughter.


Theres no doubt [the publication of The Lying Life of Adults] will be the literary event of the year.Elle 

Giovannas pretty face is changing, turning ugly, at least so her father thinks. Giovanna, he says, looks more like her Aunt Vittoria every day. But can it be true? Is she really changing? Is she turning into Aunt Vittoria, a woman she hardly knows but whom her mother and father clearly despise? Surely there is a mirror somewhere in which she can see herself as she truly is.

Giovanna is searching for her reflection in two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: a Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and a Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity. She moves between both in search of the truth, but neither city seems to offer answers or escape.

Named one of 2016s most influential people by TIME Magazine and frequently touted as a future Nobel Prize-winner, Elena Ferrante has become one of the worlds most read and beloved writers. With this novel about the transition from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, Ferrante proves once again that she deserves her many accolades. In The Lying Life of Adults, listeners will discover another gripping, highly addictive, and totally unforgettable Neapolitan story.

An amazing (and accurate) portrayal of that point in a young person's life when they discover that a lot of the things their parents had told them about everything from sex, love, family, relationships, politics and religion are not entirely true. Told through the eyes of Giovanna, Ferrante beautifully describes the coming-of-age experience, the class divide in Naples (and Italy) in the 90s and the status of women. Like descriptions in Ferrante's other works, I am horrified by the levels of sexual harassment (cat-calling, propositioning, mauling etc) experienced by girls as young as 12. A wonderful read. ( )

There is a certain sense of a solemn ritual when one first opens a Ferrante book. The initiated are familiar with her style, the visceral and the uncomfortable, but very real. In this novel, Ferrante stays in her charted territory, in a geographical sense as we are still in Napoli, and also because the protagonist is an adolescent. That age is the one that in my opinion she writes most convincingly about - in the Neapolitan quartet, the second book dealing with that part of growing up of the main characters was my favourite.

In this book, the protagonist comes from the middle class, but her working-class roots are inescapable and potentially empowering, embodied in the character of her aunt Vittoria.

Ferrante did not disappoint in describing the painful way in which teenagers come to terms with reality after the childhood illusions disappear. Giovanna, the main character, goes through different phases of her world dissolving around her, and it is not a comfortable transformation. For me, it was overly negative and very difficult to read. It is a difficult time in life and I my would never want to go back to that age, but I felt as if Ferrante focused only on the negative to the point that not only I couldn't suspend my disbelief, but I also didn't care about Giovanna or any other character at all.

Some things I found interesting - the novel felt too constructed. There was a shadow of the Neapolitan Quartet in this one - characters that corresponded to the ones from the previous books a little bit too much which was uninspired. I also sensed similarities to another great Italian writer Elsa Morante and her novel Menzogna e Sortilegio and the character of Vittoria echoed Emerence from Magda Szabo's excellent novel [b: The Door|497499|The Door|Magda Szabó|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1175252169l/497499._SY75_.jpg|485644].

While I can see value in this book and always enjoy Ferrante's writing style, I didn't like it as much as her previous work. She is always great at describing the inner world of a woman, especially a woman who is frustrated and unhappy. But, I'm starting to get tired of Ferrante's negative depiction of men who always end up ruining women and the loop in which her characters always seem to end up stuck, bound by their environment.

The Lying Life of Adults is a true and compelling insight into adolescence regardless of setting. The story is hung on the multiple threads of a chance remark, a bracelet and the sense of betrayal of trust that inevitably arises from following your heart. Elena Ferrante somehow fills this story with unflinching honesty. Inexorably, the children become the adults even as they try to be the opposite.


...and just because I had no intention of being stopped by anyone, my face could only be a copy of Vittoria's. Betraying Giuliana's trust, I would in fact become like my aunt when she destroyed Margherita's life, and, why not, like her brother, my father, when he destroyed my mother's. I felt guilty. I was a virgin and that night I wanted to lose my virginity with the only person who had given me, thanks to his enormous authority as a male, a new beauty. It seemed my right, that was how I would enter adulthood. But...

Sterker dan ooit schreef Ferrante dit boek alsof ze al schrijvend zit te vissen in haar eigen geheugen, met tussenzinnen als: ‘Hij zei, maar ik vat het hier samen…’. Daarbij dreigt ze soms te ontsporen, en is het of ze wordt overmand door haar herinneringen.

Werkelijk mis gaat het net niet, het is deel van Ferrantes literaire spel. Wie dat niet meespeelt moet dat zelf weten, die krijgt het moeilijk met dit boek. Vertalers Miriam Bunnik en Mara Schepers houden het gewiekst in ere. Ze vertalen de lange, soms gekunstelde, altijd interessante zinnen van Elena Ferrante in galopperend Nederlands, met behoud van Ferrantes kenmerkende, houterige Schwung. (****)
