Named one of The Guardian's "Best Books of 2016." From the author of My Brilliant Friend. This book invites readers into Elena Ferrante’s workshop. It offers a glimpse into the drawers of her writing desk, those drawers from which emerged her three early standalone novels and the four installments of My Brilliant Friend, known in English as the Neapolitan Quartet. Includes over 20 years of letters, essays, reflections, and interviews.

Posted because I am currently reading it, and ran across this 2016 discussion from The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR (YT, an hour and 15 minutes): "Ann Goldstein, Ferrante’s longtime English-language translator, joins authors Roxana Robinson and Judith Thurman to discuss the work of this enigmatic author and her collection of essays and letters, Bits and Pieces of Uncertain Origin, coming out in November. The evening is hosted by WNYC producer and Los Angeles Times critic-at-large Rebecca Carroll."
