In the Margins

On the Pleasures of Reading and Writing

Elena Ferrante


In Stock


A delightful collection of original essays on reading and writing. From the internationally acclaimed author of My Brilliant Friend, The Lying Life of Adults, and The Lost Daughter, come four revelatory pieces offering rare insight into the author’s formation as a writer and life as a reader. Ferrante warns us of the perils of “bad language”-historically alien to the truth of women-and advocates for a collective fusion of female talent as she brilliantly discourses on the work of her most beloved authors.
