Vuelve la escritora más misteriosa y fascinante de la actualidad, autora de la saga Dos amigas, con más de treinta millones de lectores. La amistad, el primer amor, el cambio climático, los celos, el feminismo, nuestra relación con las plantas, el secreto de una pareja amorosa duradera o la belleza son algunos de los grandes temas sobre los que Elena Ferrante escribió a petición de The Guardian. El resultado es este libro, íntimo e inteligente, en el que, a través de los textos publicados cada sábado a lo largo de un año, la aclamada autora invita a pensar, comparte recuerdos e ideas y emociona como lo hacen sus novelas. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "Elena Ferrante is the best-selling author of My Brilliant Friend, now an HBO original series. Collected here for the first time are the seeds of future novels, the timely reflections of this internationally beloved storyteller, the abiding preoccupations of a writer who has been called "one of the great novelists of our time" (New York Times). "This is my last column, after a year that has scared and inspired me... I have written as an author of novels, taking on matters that are important to me and that--if I have the will and the time--I'd like to develop within real narrative mechanisms." With these words, Elena Ferrante bid farewell to her year-long collaboration with The Guardian newspaper. For a full year, she wrote weekly articles, the subjects of which had been suggested by The Guardian editors, making the writing process a sort of prolonged interlocution. The subjects ranged from first love to climate change, from enmity among women to the experience of seeing her novels adapted for film and TV."
