Elena Ferrante in The Guardian and Roads and Kingdoms
https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/series/elena-ferrantes-weekend-column Elena Ferrante has, in recent years, become a sensation in the UK—and internationally—as readers discover her writings, particularly her Neapolitan quartet of novels. These focus on the lives of two women: their relationships with their city, families, friends, co-workers and, most importantly, one another. For some time after the novels became available in English in late 2012, many conversations about books, or life and culture in general, would circle around the question: ‘Have you read My Brilliant Friend…?’
roadsandkingdoms.com Roads and Kingdoms is a travel website and online publication. In some ways it fits standard expectations of the genre, offering up city guides and more general recommendations about the best places to eat and stay. But the longer articles, commissioned from writers based around the world who approach their subjects from a variety of creative narrative angles, are unusually nuanced and reflective.
